- Phase 1: Selection of your two concentrations on Thursday, June 13 and Friday, June 14, 2019
PSIA students are admitted to a master program and then choose two concentrations. PSIA students tailor their course of study through in-depth exploration of a master program, and have the opportunity to sub-specialize not once, but twice, by enrolling in two concentration programs.
Students must choose 2 concentrations which they will follow for the duration of their studies at PSIA.
(Please note that dual degree students must choose 1 concentration only, which they will follow for the duration of their studies at PSIA).
Each semester, students take 2 concentration courses: 1 in each concentration. A concentration in Regional Studies is recommended for all students.
With 7 master programs and 21 concentrations, PSIA students have thousands of possible combinations of master and concentrations for their academic program. No two PSIA students are alike, as PSIA offers you the freedom to design your very own career profile, ensuring a cutting-edge on the job market.
Before selecting your concentrations in June, we strongly encourage you to consult the vast array of concentration programs available to you at PSIA during your course of study. To find a detailed description of each concentration, please explore the concentrations.
Students pursuing a master where the specialisation is also offered as a concentration have no obligation to also register for this same concentration. Some students may decide to do so in order to deepen their expertise, but we usually encourage our students to benefit from the wide variety of our programs and diversify their profile in preparation for their future career plans.
Process to select your concentrations:
Connect to your Student Account:
· Click on Student Interface: Course Registration
· From the Menu "Select a Term": Please choose 1er Semestre 2019-2020
· Then, on the Page "Register for your Courses", please click on "Choix de Concentrations - Concentrations Choices"
Phase 2 and Phase 3: Course Registration
Course selection is on a first-come, first-served basis. We are aware that the scheduled times may not be the most convenient for our students across the world, however, as our school is representative of approximately 100 countries we make an active attempt to choose the time most convenient for the majority of our students.
Selecting your concentration programs and then the courses you will follow are key: we take immense care in designing a curriculum of excellence, with hundreds of professors and professionals who are acclaimed by our students and who have contributed to global affairs at the highest level. The three phases of course registration are a very important time for you, so please familiarize yourself with the process and with the website well in advance of registration.
Additionally, please be certain to activate your sciencespo.fr e-mail account as soon as possible, if you have not already done so. After the registration period, all official university communication will be sent to your sciencespo.fr account only.
