About this Double Degree programme

Sciences Po and LSE have come together to offer high-achieving students a joint curriculum in European studies. Bilingual (French and English), and spanning a wide range of disciplines, this very select programme is delivered by renowned EU specialists, many with practical experience of policymaking.

The programme focuses on the history, politics, 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 international relations, history, economics, law, philosophy and political science, all with a strongly European focus.

Your first year is spent at Sciences Po, in the Master Affaires Européennes (Master of European Affairs). Sciences Po has been training some of the best young minds of France and Europe for leadership roles in both public and private sectors. As one of Europe's most prestigious universities, Sciences Po prepares its students for careers in international business, multilateral organisations, national ministries and agencies, consultancy, academic, non-governmental organisations and the media.

Your second year takes place within the European Institute at LSE. It is a dedicated centre for the interdisciplinary study of processes of integration and fragmentation within Europe. The Institute's disciplinary range is unrivalled: with academic staff and distinguished visiting scholars drawn from the fields of politics, economics, geography, history, political economy, law, philosophy, sociology and international relations. You will have the option to study either MSc Culture and Conflict in a Global Europe, MSc Political Economy of Europe or MSc European and International Public Policy.
