Dual degree with AgroParisTech (Paris Institute of Technology for Life, Food and Environmental Sciences)

Sciences Po has partnered with AgroParisTech to offer a dual Master's degree programme. AgroParisTech's mission is to train future engineers and decision-makers in the fields of life, food and environmental sciences, in order to make a significant contribution to the challenges of sustainably feeding a growing population, preserving natural resources and supporting innovation.

The objective is to offer AgroParisTech engineering students and Sciences Po students the means to acquire dual expertise that will be recognised on the labour market.


The dual degree programme takes three years. For Sciences Po students, it is organised as follows:

  • The first year takes place at Sciences Po. Students complete the courses for the first-year curriculum of their chosen Master's programme.
  • The second and third years take place at AgroParisTech.

There are four concentrations available: Sustainable production, networks and land; Engineering of food products, biomolecules and energy; Environmental engineering and management; Engineering and health: man, biological products and the environment

Once they have completed the courses at both institutions and satisfied all course requirements, students are awarded a Sciences Po Master's degree and a Master's level engineering degree from AgroParisTech.

Graduate destinations

This dual degree is designed for students seeking expertise in the health, environment, energy or sustainable development sectors so they can work towards developing efficient, sustainable responses to contemporary global challenges—particularly those caused by climate change.


Only those Sciences Po students currently in the first year of their Master's at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA), School of Public Affairs, School of Management and Innovation or the Urban School are eligible for this dual degree programme.

To apply, they must have had some science education at undergraduate level, either at Sciences Po as part of a dual programme at the Undergraduate College, or at another institution before being admitted to Sciences Po at graduate level.
