Sciences Po-LSE Double Degree in Affaires Internationales and IR/IPE

This is a double degree which takes place over the course of two full academic years with the first year in Paris and the second in London. The focus of the double degree is international affairs.  It is designed primarily for those who intend to practise negotiation in government, international institutions and business, as well as those with a general interest in international relations and international political economy. 

The first year of the double degree is spent at Sciences Po in the Master Affaires Internationales.  Students must choose between three specialisations: sécurité internationale, management public international, and politique économique internationale. During the second year of the double degree, which is spent at the LSE, you will have a choice between taking the MSc International Relations and the MSc International Political Economy. You will be required to take three examinations and to write a dissertation of 10,000 words. Whichever route you take, each of your courses will normally amount to up to 40 hours of teaching in lecture and seminar form.
