A new dual Master’s degree with the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore

Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP) at the National University of Singapore and Sciences Po School of Public Affairs are launching a two-year double degree programme between their respective Master in Public Policy and Master in European Affairs.

Students will begin the dual programme at Sciences Po School of Public Affairs in Paris, continuing at LKYSPP in Singapore in their second year.
Studying at leading universities in both Paris and Singapore, students will gain an in-depth understanding of public policy issues from European and Asian perspectives. Admitting students from different cultures into both schools also contributes to a greater exchange of insights and ideas among the student cohort.

Learning beyond the textbook

During the first year at Sciences Po School of Public Affairs, student learning will go beyond the fundamental modules on public policy. Students will gain industry exposure through policy labs where they will collaborate with clients to co-develop and test practical solutions aimed at solving policy challenges. At LKYSPP, they will define real-world policy issues and develop recommendations as part of the school’s Policy Analysis Exercise.
The first cohort of students in the dual degree programme will start classes in Paris in September 2018.

Telling history through comics

Telling history through comics

Comics have really earned their stripes in recent years and are now a research subject in their own right. Isabelle Delorme, who has just been awarded her PhD from Sciences Po’s Centre for History, is interested in what she calls “historical memory narratives in comics”: works in which authors interweave family history with general history, such as in the immensely popular Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. What does the study of comics contribute to research? We asked Dr Delorme, a researcher who is passionate about her subject.

Training students to be media-savvy

Structuring one’s ideas to be read by a lay audience, using social networks to build a community focused on one’s area of expertise, writing a column or being interviewed on camera or the radio are all situations that Sciences Po graduates are likely to face in their professional lives, whatever career they go into.
To prepare students for this type of exercise, the School of Journalism is setting up a “Media and Narrative Centre” which will be open to all Master’s students who want to understand different types of media and how they work.

Meet the Reims campus gardeners

Today, more than 50 percent of the world’s population lives in cities. Reason enough for the student association Sciences Po Environment to make urban agriculture one of its main focuses.

In January 2017, the Reims campus branch of Sciences Po Environment launched Sciences Potager, a project to plant and maintain a vegetable garden on campus. To help them get started, they sought the expertise of L’Ecole des Jardiniers, a local association that promotes organic agriculture.
