The Campuses

Sciences Po is present today in seven French cities: Dijon, Le Havre, Menton, Nancy, Paris, Poitiers, and Reims. These seven campuses are located in cities boasting exceptional historical and cultural heritage. The DDP with NUS is being offered at three of these seven campuses — Le Havre, Menton, and Reims.

Le Havre campus
Located on the coast of Normandy, Le Havre has hosted a campus since 2007. Located today in a building overlooking the port, the Le Havre campus offers the Europe-Asia undergraduate programme.

Menton campus
Established in the French Riviera city of Menton in 2005, the campus is located in an entirely renovated 19th century building overlooking the Mediterranean. It hosts students enrolled in the Middle East - Mediterranean undergraduate programme.

Reims campus
In the heart of the Champagne region, the Reims campus opened in September 2010 in the “Cité des Rois.” Located in a 17th century building, this campus hosts students enrolled in the Europe-North America undergraduate programme and the Europe-Africa undergraduate programme. The Reims campus is the only campus offering a certificate-awarding exchange programme for students who wish to enhance their studies in international relations.

The Classes

The aim of the first two years of study is to provide students with a foundational grounding in the social sciences. DDP students will complete Sciences Po’s common core curriculum, which focuses on Economics, History, Law, Political Science, Sociology—and, more importantly, their interconnections. Each of the three regional campuses offering the DDP will inflect these studies through their respective focus on a geopolitical region: Le Havre on Europe and Asia, Menton on the Middle East and the Mediterranean, and Reims on Africa and North America.

In addition to the common curriculum, students will also do electives in the humanities, including artistic workshops. There are also classes on communication and oral presentation skills. Students will also enroll in language classes, such that, at graduation, they will be proficient in French and, in some cases, another language relevant for the geopolitical focus they have chosen.
