About the Double Degree

Are you an exceptional student looking to specialise in European studies? The double degree in European studies offered by Sciences Po and LSE is the perfect program for you.

Delivered by renowned specialists in the study of Europe, many with practical experience of policymaking, this select program covers a wide range of disciplines and offers the option of bilingual instruction in Paris (French and English).

You'll study the culture, politics, and economics of Europe, as well as the policies and institutions of the European Union. The program also focuses on the ideas which underpin the European project, and the political, economic, and social challenges facing Europe.

Courses are multidisciplinary and you'll have the opportunity to choose from a variety of options in political science, political economy, international relations, and philosophy all with a strong European focus.

Join us and become part of a vibrant and dynamic community of students, researchers, and practitioners who are shaping the future of European studies.

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.
