The programme provides foundations in theory and methodology, and allows for specialization in the areas of expertise of the sociology department at Sciences Po. In the first year students develop a foundation, acquire command of qualitative and quantitative methods, and begin to specialize. The second year focuses on deepening knowledge and preparing a research paper in close connection with the laboratories. This paper is a key element for evaluating a student's ability to pursue a doctoral dissertation.
L'équipe pédagogique est constituée de sociologues internationalement reconnus. Si l'enseignement bénéficie d'apports extérieurs à Sciences Po, le noyau central de l'équipe pédagogique provient avant tout des centres de recherche de Sciences Po.
