SCIENCES PO IN PARIS

 

Sciences Po (Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris) 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 Paris offers the majority of their curriculum in French; however, there is a large selection of English-taught courses available.

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