Sciences Po is France’s top political science program and is the alma mater of many French politicians, diplomats, and policy makers. University of Michigan students have the opportunity to study for a semester or year at the Sciences Po campus in Reims or in Paris, France. The program is geared toward students with an interest in political science, international studies, and similar social sciences, with courses taught in English or French.
Earn 12-18 credits in fields including international affairs, European affairs, economics and business, journalism, and communication. This program is a great fit for students who want to experience living in a European college town with easy access to a larger city. Reims is located approximately 90 miles (45 minutes by train) outside of Paris in the heart of the Champagne region. The Reims campus is in a smaller city that immerses students in French culture and language. During free weekends, explore Paris and France’s other regions.
Note: French courses offered at Sciences Po Paris cannot be used to meet the LSA language requirement for French. If a student is interested in taking classes abroad to fulfill the LSA language requirement, they should contact a CGIS advisor or the LSA Romance Languages and Literatures Department.
