Two of the world's leading institutions for the humanities and social sciences, the University of Sydney's Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Sciences Po in France, are joining forces to offer students new dual degree programs in 2014.
In an agreement that will allow students to complete half of their studies in Paris and half in Sydney, the two universities have announced a credit recognition agreement for Sydney's Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Political, Economic and Social Sciences (BPESS) programs, with a Sciences Po BA degree.
Upon successful completion of either the dual BA or BPESS program, students will graduate with degrees from both institutions.
The University of Sydney will be the first Australian higher education institution to enter into a dual degree arrangement with Sciences Po, joining Columbia University, University College London and the University of British Columbia as a partner university for the international dual BA program.
A pilot of the dual degree arrangement is expected to begin in July 2014, when the first influx of students from Sciences Po will arrive to study at the University of Sydney. Studentsjointly recruited by the two institutions from all over the world, including France and Australia, will be able to undertake the dual degree in France from 2015, with a call for applications anticipated in 2014.
Dean of the University of Sydney's Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Professor Duncan Ivison, said the new dual program will enable students to "pursue a truly global education in the humanities and social sciences."
"We are absolutely delighted to be forming this new partnership with Sciences Po, one of Europe's leading and most innovative universities," said Professor Ivison.
"Universities often talk about preparing their students to become global citizens - we are actually doing it. Being able to combine programs will provide students with an unrivalled opportunity to immerse themselves in two distinct cultural, political, academic and social environments in Europe and the Asia Pacific."
Dean of Studies of Sciences Po, Professor Françoise Mélonio, said: "We are proud to partner with the University of Sydney and to offer a program which is the only one of its kind between a European and an Australian institution. The high standard and complementarity of both curriculums will enable us to attract excellent students from Asia and the Pacific."

Paul Stephenson has joined the Center for European Studies through a Marie Curie fellowship awarded by the European Union in order to study the mechanisms by which it reports to Member States and citizens of the efficiency of use of their money.
There is growing crisis of confidence among EU citizens in the democratic accountability of the EU. There is uncertainty among many political actors about the added vale of EU policies paid for via the EU budget. More than ever, the EU must demonstrate the chains and mechanisms of accountability vis-à-vis its member states and their general publics, as to the correct and effective use of taxpayers’ money.
APPLAUD (Accountability and Public Policy Audit in the European Union) will analyse the institutionalisation of financial control and public policy audit in the EU. It will examine the structures through which the EU has come to ‘give account’ of its public policies, but also how institutions themselves have shaped what we understand by ‘accountability’ in the EU. As such the project will have both an inter-institutional dimension, while also looking historically at the creation and evolution of the European Court of Auditors in Luxembourg, its internal functioning, structures and approaches to audit.
The results will be an enhanced understanding of the link between accountability and institutionalisation, and the evolution of the Court’s role and practice. The project will contribute to key debates in public policy on government and accountability, and to the state-of-the-art by bringing new theoretical, methodological and empirical dimensions to the study of financial control in the EU since the 1950s.
The project adopts a mixed method approach of document analysis - including EU institutional archives housed in Florence - elite interviews and questionnaires, and in so doing will seek to reconcile the literature on accountability with insights from new institutionalism and political sociology.
