Dual Degree with the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (Singapore)
This dual degree programme provides students with the opportunity to experience education systems and build professional networks in two different parts of the world. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of public policy issues from Asian and European perspectives. Introducing students from different cultures and perspectives into both schools also adds to a greater exchange of insights and ideas among the student cohort.
The Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy has extensive collaborations within the global academic community and has strategic partnerships with the Harvard Kennedy School, as well as with the Global PublicPolicy Network (GPPN).
Students follow first-year courses at the Master in European Affairs at Sciences Po and second-year courses at the Master Public Policy at the Lee Kuan Yew, School of Public Policy (LKYSPP).
During the first year at Sciences Po students learn the fundamental basis of the European integration project, with a political, legal and economic perspective. Moreover, they select a policy stream which provides them with an immersion in multiple policy fields, with an emphasis on the role of values, ethics, and cultural contexts. Beyond fundamental modules on public policy, students will participate in the specialized capstone program for this dual degree. The topic of the capstone module is “People, Movement and Identity: France in Europe and Singapore in Asia.” The capstone will include both academic coursework and a series of project workshops on specific case studies.
The second year at the LKYSPP complements this approach, focusing on Policy in Globalised World. Students will also put theory into practice by defining real-world policy issues and developing recommendations as part of the school’s Policy Analysis Exercise.
Students may choose to study in English or in French at Sciences Po. At the LKYSPP of Singapore courses are taught in English.
Upon successful completion of the two years, students receive two degree: the Master of European Affairs from Sciences Po and the Master of Public Policy from the LKYSPP.
The dual degree program with LKYSPP is open to all candidates worldwide. Admission is competitive, based largely on academic excellence and professional focus.
