Sciences Po is one of the world's foremost universities for the study of government and politics. It offers a well-rounded curriculum, yet is largely known for the social sciences. Sciences Po has six additional campuses in other cities that are also open to UT students. Each of these campuses has a regional focus, such as Latin American Studies or Eastern European Studies. Sciences Po has a very international campus, with nearly half of all students coming from abroad to study. This provides for a very intellectual and stimulating classroom experience. Sciences Po in Reims teaches half of their curriculum in French, and the other half in English, giving UT Austin students a wide variety of course availability.

Students will earn regular in-residence UT credit. All grades earned for the courses undertaken are computed into the official UT GPA.
