MCOL2000 - Projet Collectif (to be credited in the Spring)246 Les projets collectifs

The Team Project ("Projets Collectifs") is an optional module offered to all graduate students at Sciences Po, which counts for 6 credits ECTS. It is based on an annual commitment and credits are granted for the spring semester.

Based on a professionally oriented experience, the Team Project allows students to acquire a global and concrete vision of project management. 

Students are split into teams, 3-5 in each, to carry out the project in tandem with a public institution, a company or an association, from September to May, with an average of three hours of work per week. 

A group of three students minimum can also suggest a project to our team. The launch of the project will depend on its validation.

If you enroll for a Team Project, you can ask for a waiver of a core course for the spring semester, pending on the approval of your academic advisor. Dual Degree students are not eligible for a waiver, as they risk not meeting the academic requirements for their first year of study.

The full list of Team Projects 2017-2018 will be available from the week of July 10th on the dedicated website. 

Registration for the academic year 2017-2018 will take place from August 28th to September 4th 2017.

If you have any question, please consult our website or contact our team: projets.collectifs@sciencespo.fr
