The Paris campus is Sciences Po's original campus. As well as Undergraduate College students, it accommodates all Master's and doctoral students at the seven Sciences Po graduate schools.

A general multidisciplinary programme

Students on the Paris campus follow the multidisciplinary curriculum in the humanities and social sciences common to the entire Undergraduate College without a geographical minor.

The programme is taught in French with some courses in English and gives students a solid grounding in law, economics, history, political humanities, political science and sociology.

The Paris campus is also home to students on the dual degree programmes with Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (social sciences and applied mathematics) and Sorbonne Université (faculté de lettres) (social sciences and humanities with a choice between literature, philosophy or history) and Sorbonne Université (faculté des sciences et ingénierie) (science and social sciences). Students also have the opportunity of enrolling on a dual Bachelor of Arts and Sciences degree with the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris, the UFR Mathematics or the UFR Life Sciences (Université Paris Cité).

Students can study one of the fifteen languages taught on campus, while also taking English courses for students who do not have B2-level English.

A unique experience in an international environment

The Paris campus has about 3,000 undergraduate students, over a third of whom are international students on a semester or year of exchange at Sciences Po. This cultural diversity makes the first two years on campus an international experience in itself, which is capped off with the third year abroad studying at one of Sciences Po's 470 partner universities or with a dual degree with University College London (UCL).

Campus life is also kept vibrant by the vast range of clubs and associations on offer and many events throughout the year. With the choice of more than 80 artistic, union, political, cultural and humanitarian clubs and associations, students are encouraged to participate in activities that develop their sense of community and responsibility.
