School of Management and Innovation - open in a new windowThe Master Communications, Media and Creative Industries is being integrated into the Sciences Po School of Management and Innovation launched in October 2016.
Current students will continue studying in their original Master's programme.
Their programme may undergo a few alterations related to the School's organisation for the 2017/2018 academic year.

The Master Communications, Media and Creative Industries program aims to cast light on an rapidly-changing world where the ubiquity of international exchange and the advent of digital media have reshuffled the cards.

Through an approach that integrates both academic as well as professional training, students receive an education that is both current and grounded in reality.

Apprenticeship: Details


For the first four months, from September to December, students are considered part- time employees at the company (2.5 days of work); they then work full-time for the eight remaining months. Students are, however, required to attend five full days of mandatory seminars at Sciences Po in the second semester.

Supervision :

  • Apprenticeship Supervisor: A professional from within the company who is responsible for welcoming the apprentice, helping him/her integrate into the company and supervising his/her work.
  • Tutor: A second professional (from another organization) who is also a teacher at the School of Communication. The tutor advises and guides the apprentice in the early stages of his/her professional life.
  • Academic staff: Ensure the proper continuation of the student’s academic engagements and monitor his/her compliance with (the School's) academic requirements.


In addition to the work that they do at the organization of their choice, students are also required to write a 20 to 30-page dissertation.

The School expects this work to be based on a theoretical topic relating to the placement rather than an internship report. The subject of the dissertation is determined in consultation with the apprenticeship supervisor and the tutor.

At the end of the apprenticeship in September, the dissertation has to be defended in the presence of the two professional supervisors and a member of the School’s academic staff.
