Times Higher Education Ranking: Sciences Po places 39th in the world for the social sciences

Times Higher Education (THE), whose world ranking is one of the most highly regarded in the sector, has just published its university statistics by subject. This year, Sciences Po has climbed into the top 40 social science universities worldwide. Placing 39th in the world, the university has risen 11 places compared to last year’s results. In the space of two years, Science Po has risen 29 places in the ranking. This improvement is linked to its research activities and the increasing internationalisation of the university.

Sciences Po has made particular progress in research (+8 points) and teaching (+4 points). Meanwhile, the university retains its strong position with regards to “Citations”, a criterion that determines the influence of a university’s research worldwide. This is Sciences Po’s greatest strength in the ranking. It also continues to score highly in the “International outlook” performance indicator, which assesses the institution’s attractiveness among students and academics.

THE now places Sciences Po higher than Southern California University, California, San Diego University, King’s College London and McGill University.

Sciences Po has also risen from second to first in France in the THE World Rankings by country. That put it above Paris Sciences et Lettres (PSL), the collegiate university that brings together some of the leading French institutions in the social sciences (École normale supérieure, Ecole pratique des hautes études and Université Paris Dauphine).
