Greetings from SciencesPo, France!
Sciences Po is an international research university, both selective and open onto the world, ranking among the finest institutions in the fields of humanities and social sciences. Sciences Po has served the general interest ever since its founding. This social responsibility influences all of its activities: student recruitment, education, research, and institutional governance.
After careful consideration of the global health situation, the Sciences Po Summer School has decided to move a selection of its courses online in July 2020. While SciencesPo is not able to welcome students on campus, the University is committed to providing a safe and enriching academic experience that maintains Sciences Po’s rigorous academic standards.
Online courses are organized in small-group, interactive seminars. Courses take place via Zoom in a live, synchronous format to allow for maximum interaction. Class schedules allow students from a wide variety of time zones to participate. The University Programme offers two academic tracks in social sciences and the French language.
Social Sciences Track
In the social sciences track, students choose one core class for intensive study from the six classes offered online this summer:
– The Age of Economists: Globalization, Growth, and Inequalities
– The European Union at a Crossroads
– Global Diplomacy: Theory and Practice
– Human Rights and Global Development
– Human Security
– Sustainable Development and Climate Action

French Language Track
In the French language track, students are immersed in French language and culture with courses for complete beginners to advanced speakers. Classes focus on developing language skills while also delving into French culture and contemporary issues in France. Small, interactive classes allow students to make rapid progress and improve their communication and comprehension skills.
