Our downtown Paris campus
An exceptional learning environment
Experience one of the most inspiring destinations for visionary thought while following in the footsteps of Sartre, Hemmingway and Picasso. In Paris’ historical Saint Germain neighborhood, the once beating heart of French intellectualism and political debate, you will find the necessary perspective for tackling today’s complex issues.
Saint-Germain-des-Prés: a cradle of free thought
Our Paris campus is located in the heart of this legendary neighborhood and historical center of Parisian intellectual and cultural life. Philosophers, writers and artists from around the world flocked to Saint-Germain-des-Prés after the Second World War in order to debate their ideas and expand their thinking. Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Boris Vian, Picasso, Jacques Prévert, Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut are just some of the major figures who forged the area’s cultural heritage.
Many museums, monuments, theaters, art galleries and movie theaters are easily accessible from campus. This vibrant, urban environment sets the Sciences Po learning experience apart for both university student and Executive Education participants.
The world of Sciences Po at your doorstep
Campus life buzzes thanks to the countless activities available to the students and executives that come to Paris from a vast diversity of backgrounds and countries. You will have the chance to take part in all events organized by the school: exhibits, debates, job fairs, forums, speeches given by leading global figures and more.
Immersed in the exchanges and interactions between intellectuals, chief executives, political figures and researchers, you will find the inspiration you need to carry out your responsibilities and take action in a globalized world.
