As of September 2021, Sciences Po will be offering two new dual undergraduate degrees combining liberal arts and sciences. The newest of the university’s Bachelor of Arts and Sciences programmes, these brand new dual degrees are run in partnership with Université de Paris. They give students the opportunity to pair study of the social sciences with either mathematics, in the “Algorithms and Decisions” track, or life sciences, in the “Politics of Life and Identities”' track. Both degrees last four years and are taught in Paris, on the campuses of each partner university.
