Students choose from one of three Sciences Po campuses for their first two years. The three campuses share a common curriculum exploring a broad range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.

Roughly one third of each campus’s student body comes from the region of focus, with international and French students comprising the other two thirds. The regional campuses are small and intimate, ensuring favorable class sizes and a strong sense of campus community.

Regardless of campus, all students will:

  • take core courses in the social sciences: political science, economics, history, sociology, and law
  • choose from electives in the humanities: philosophy, art history, literary studies
  • take language courses that correspond to the campus’s linguistic and cultural orientation
