The Reims Campus of Sciences Po opened its doors in 2010, hosting the Euro-American studies program, a Bachelor Degree in the social sciences that caters to students from around the world, including a strong presence of those from the United States, Canada and Europe. The core curriculum of the Degree is taught in English and offers a comparative perspective (North America / Europe).

Since September 2015, the Reims Campus is hosting the Europe-Africa studies program of Sciences Po. Students on the degree come from all parts of Africa and the world. This is an ambitious program to prepare future leaders for both private and public sectors of African nations.

The Reims Campus also hosts a significant program for students wishing to study at Sciences Po on exchange for one or two semesters. These students hail from one of the 410 academic partners in Sciences Po's international network and have the opportunity to complete one of four special certificates: International Affairs & Strategy, European Affairs, Economics & Business or Journalism. The certificates are offered mostly in English but encourage students to improve their French language skills.

The combination of these three programs provides the Reims Campus with unparalleled international studies with a resounding diversity in the student body. Academic programs and methods are innovative, combining international best practices.

Located just 30 minutes from Roissy Charles de Gaulle International Airport and 45 minutes from Paris by the high speed train (TGV), Reims is a Gallo-Roman city with a rich architectural heritage and was the traditional coronation site of the kings of France. The city is also the capital of the Champagne-Ardenne region and is world renowned for its Champagne production.

The Reims Campus is located on an old Jesuit college, which was constructed at the beginning of the 17th Century. The site has been beautifully restored with the support of local government institutions: City of Reims, County and Regional Councils.
