Sciences Po in 4th place in the 2018 QS Rankings for Politics and International Studies

For the third year in a row, Sciences Po is 4th in the world in the “Politics and International Studies” subject category of the 2018 QS World University Rankings, just behind Harvard, Oxford, and Princeton.

Among the one thousand world-leading universities in this category, Sciences Po is the first of continental Europe.

Over the past five years, the QS World University Rankings have confirmed Sciences Po’s place amongst leading universities in the social sciences. In sociology, Sciences Po’s upward progression is reaffirmed with a ranking that has improved year after year: since coming in 50th and then in 44th position the past two years, we are now 37th this year. In history and in law, Sciences Po maintains its position within the 51st and 100th positions. Sciences Po also upholds its rank in economics, between the 100 and 150th positions.
