A high standard bicultural programme devoted to European
Sciences Po and LSE decided to come together to propose high standards undergraduate's students a joint curriculum, the Double Masters in European Studies, leading to the Master in Affaires européennes from Sciences Po and either the MSc Ideas and Identities, MSc European Political Economy or MSc Politics and Government in the European Union, thus uniting their efforts in an area they both excel in.
This specific 2-year programme offers a top-level education in the area of European Studies to participating students, giving them the opportunity to develop a top-level career in private, public or international sector. Students benefit from a wide Sciences Po – LSE Alumni network.
In this programme, students will focus on the main theories and expertise relevant on EU institutions, integration and politics; they will also get the chance to be taught by distinguished speakers, being business leaders as well as policy makers. Students combine seminars on specific issues as well as workshops, simulation, case studies, talks…
Spanning a wide range of discipline and bilingual (French and English), this selective programme is based on mutual recognition of both curricula and evaluation in the partner university.
The students will be graduated eventually, providing all credits have been taken in both institutions, from both Master de Sciences Po in Affaires européennes and MSC in European Studies from the LSE (Ideas and Identities, European Political
Programme of studies
The Double degree Sciences Po – LSE in European Studies lasts two academic years : first year will be spent at Sciences Po, in the Master Affaires européennes; second year will take place within the European Institute of the LSE either in the MSc Ideas and Identities, MSc European Political Economy or MSc Politics and Government in the European Union.
Students remain enrolled in both institutions for both years; they will therefore benefit from all the students' services (free access to library, student unions, career services …).
Courses are multi disciplinary and students will choose among International Relations, History, Economics, Law, and Political Science with an European focus. They will also be asked to follow one language class at Sciences Po. Students may be asked to improve their proficiency in French and/or English, in order for them to reach a level 5 at Sciences Po in both languages.
Assessment will be the same as for the regular students enrolled in the school where the students study. Students will take 60 credits at Sciences Po and the 3 terms at the LSE.
Final graduation will rely on the validation by the student of both years of the programme. Therefore, students get a temporary graduation in July at Sciences Po and graduate definitely in October of the last year, providing all units are taken at LSE.
Candidates apply directly via the Sciences Po web-site, application online only.
Applications are administered centrally at Sciences Po when they will be examined by a joint admissions board comprising representatives of both LSE and Sciences Po. Applicants will be notified by emails and post (for admitted students).
