Sciences Po aims to offer education firmly rooted in five social science disciplines: economics, law, history, sociology and political science. It stands out for a multidisciplinary approach and a focus on students' ability to understand and analyse complexity. This is an indispensable quality to move forward in constantly changing environments.
Solid professional bases
At Sciences Po, academic knowledge goes hand in hand with professional development, and general knowledge complements a sense of action. Students are encouraged to assume responsibility thanks to the teaching of more than 4,000 academics including 2,400 practitioners, (corporate executives, senior French and international civil servants, etc.) and internships, which are an integral part of the students' course of study.
An international culture
At Sciences Po, an international spirit pervades every dimension of academic and student life: learning to work as early as possible with classmates from different cultural backgrounds and in different languages; developing a broader worldview thanks to compulsory year-long study-abroad programmes; studying every subject essential to understanding Europe and the world.
Openness to all disciplines
Breaking down borders between disciplines also means introducing new perspectives: the arts and natural sciences are an integral part of the intellectual experience at Sciences Po.
A work method
To prepare students for a continually changing world, education at Sciences Po aims to develop specific qualities: intellectual curiosity and agility, an aptitude for oral and written expression, as well as adaptability.
Learning to learn
At Sciences Po, academic and personal development are intimately linked. Intellectual curiosity, critical thinking skills and self-examination: these are the aptitudes and attitudes developed throughout the course of study. These qualities are continuously cultivated through teamwork, student presentations, small classes, debates and participation in student associations.
