Dual degree with University of St. Gallen

Section #programmes

Mastering several languages, knowing different European cultures and adopting a global perspective is more and more essential nowadays. In the current job market, the multidisciplinary curriculum is one of the key success for a career in the international setting. 

This is exactly to for these reasons that the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) at Sciences Po and the University of St.Gallen, both members of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA), have created a dual degree programme in international affairs.

This two-year programme intends to prepare students and future decision-makers for internationally focused jobs, both in the private and public sectors.

Programme overview

Section #year-1

Year 1 at Sciences Po

During the first year of the Dual Degree, students may join one of the seven Master's programs offered by the Paris School of International Affairs.

In order to help students of this dual degree to integrate and develop multicultural skills, during the first year at Sciences Po, students of the dual degree are gathered in a Franco-Swiss joint seminar, led by professors of both universities.

Section #year-2

Year 2 at the University of St.Gallen

The second year of the degree takes places at the University of St.Gallen, where students join the Master of International Affairs and Governance.

In this framework, they have the possibility to deepen their knowledge and competences in the subjects that are at the heart of the University of St.Gallen's expertise: economics, management and business. At St.Gallen students can follow courses taught in English or in German (nevertheless, German is not a mandatory language). 

Students remain enrolled in both institutions for both years; they will therefore benefit from all the students’ services (free access to library, student unions, career services…).
