Congratulations on the beginning of the new academic year!
A word from Pierre FRANÇOIS, Dean of the Doctoral School
You are starting this year as a Masters or PhD student at Sciences Po’s Doctoral School and I congratulate you for this. You have made an excellent choice in joining a model Doctoral School that brings together the humanities and social sciences into a single whole.
Sciences Po is well known for transmitting knowledge, developing the ability to speak up, and offering multidisciplinary intellectual training that fosters a sense of responsibility. The institution’s reputation also owes a lot to its international orientation.
Sciences Po is distinguished by its Doctoral School, which works together with seven mixed research units (UMR) associated with the CNRS, three hosting team units (EA) recognized by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, and three major crosscutting programs: the LIEPP, DIMESHS and MaxPo. This unique and prestigious group brings together places producing new approaches and new knowledge in law, economics, history, political science and sociology, presenting you with many opportunities to learn and conduct your research in the best conditions.
