Covid-19 Information: Due to the global Covid-19 outbreak, we have made the decision to cancel the June 2020 session of the University Programme and move a selection of the July session courses online.

The University Programme offers two academic tracks in social sciences and French language.

Social sciences track

Students in the social sciences track select one core course of intensive study from Sciences Po’s fundamental disciplines, such as international relations, political science, economics, history, and more.  Classes are led by Sciences Po professors and taught in English.

Find more information about the social sciences track and course list.

French language track

Students take a variety of classes at one of six levels adapted to their knowledge of French, from complete beginner to advanced. At all levels, language study accounts for the majority of class time, reinforced by oral and written expression workshops and tutorials.

Sciences Po awards academic credit for courses taken during the Summer School.
