Sciences Po

The seven campuses of the Undergraduate College host more than 1,000 students each year from Sciences Po’s 470 partner universities around the world, for a semester or an academic year. The curriculum can be completed in French, English, or both languages.


Campuses in various cities throughout France

The Paris campus offers numerous courses on the historic, economic, political and sociological facets of France, Europe and the World, taught by world-renowned professors. This campus offers the widest array of course offerings.
Students may choose to spend their junior year or semester at the Paris campus or at one of Sciences Po's regional undergraduate campuses. The regional campuses are distinctive from the Paris campus in several ways. Each campus has a specific regional focus, which is often comparative in nature. The regional campuses have a smaller, but more diverse, student population, and consequently have more of an international campus community atmosphere. Students may choose between the following campuses, in addition to the Paris campus:
