About the Program

The Sciences Po-PKU Dual Master’s Degree is a collaborative program on general international studies and is multidisciplinary by nature, which covers political science, international political economy, and emerging subjects like energy and environment in international studies. It emphasizes multi-cultural perspectives on global security and developmental issues and provides a unique opportunity for students to study international affairs at Paris in Europe and Beijing in Asia.

Program Overview

The dual degree Sciences Po–PKU is a two-year academic program. Students spend their first year studying at Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA), Sciences Po, where they choose between the 7 specialised masters offered in international affairs. In the second year, students join the School of International Studies (SIS) at Peking University to study a Master of International Relations with an emphasis on security and development issues and a regional focus on China and the Asia-Pacific region.

 

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…).

Dual degree students have to complete the required courses related to their chosen Master at PSIA. In addition, dual degree students must take at least one course on China during their year at PSIA during either the first or the second semester. Dual degree students will follow one language class at Sciences Po per semester.
