About the Double Degree
Sciences Po and LSE are proud to offer exceptional students a joint curriculum in European studies. Spanning a wide range of disciplines, and the option of bilingual instruction in Paris (French and English), this very select programme is delivered by renowned EU specialists, many with practical experience of policymaking.
The programme focuses on the culture, politics, and economics of Europe and the policies and institutions of the European Union; on the ideas which underpin the European project; and on the political, economic and social challenges facing Europe. Courses are multidisciplinary and you will choose options from political science, political-economy, international relations, philosophy, and area studies, all with a strong European focus.
Your first year is spent at Sciences Po, in the Master Affaires Européennes (Master of European Affairs); the second year takes place within the European Institute at LSE, where you have the option to focus your studies by taking one of four MSc programme streams: MSc International Migration and Public Policy, MSc Culture and Conflict in a Global Europe, MSc Political Economy of Europe or MSc European and International Public Policy.
