About the MSc programme

Sciences Po and LSE have come together to offer high achieving undergraduate students a joint curriculum: the Double master's degree in European Studies.

In this programme, students will focus on the history, politics and institutions of the European Union, and on the ideas which underpin the European project. Teaching is by renowned EU specialists, many with practical experience of policymaking. Students combine lectures and seminars on specific topics with workshops, simulations, case studies and attendance at public lectures and debates with top decision-makers, experts and opinion formers from across Europe.

Bilingual (French and English), and spanning a wide range of disciplines, this selective programme is based on mutual recognition of both curricula and evaluation in the partner university.

The LSE-Sciences Po Double Degree in European Studies lasts two academic years: the first year will be spent at Sciences Po, in the Master en Affaires Européennes; the second year will take place within the European Institute at LSE studying either MSc European Studies: Ideas and Identities, MSc Political Economy or Europe or MSc Politics and Government in the European Union.

Courses are multidisciplinary and students will choose among international relations, history, economics, law, philosophy and political science with a European focus.
