SIPA MIA/Sciences Po Paris Dual Degree Program

Prospective Students

Study in Paris and New York and obtain Master's degrees from both Sciences Po's Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) and Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA).

Students will have the opportunity to study in Paris and New York and obtain both Sciences Po and SIPA’s Master’s degrees in the same amount of time it takes to earn one degree. Spanning a wide range of disciplines, this unique opportunity offers core courses in international relations, economics, and management and a large number of concentrations.

The Dual Master’s Degree Program in International Affairs is a highly selective program: only 20 students will be selected each year, among applications received worldwide.

All students will spend the first year in Paris at PSIA, acquiring core skills and a solid multidisciplinary base, and their second year in New York at SIPA, where they will be able to gain in-depth specialization.

After two years, students will earn both SIPA's MIA and Sciences Po's Master’s degree. Dual Degree holders will join the ranks of an exceptional set of trans-Atlantic professionals, forging a growing network of internationally trained decision-makers.

Current Students

We encourage you to use the core mapping as a reference and guide to course selection to meet SIPA core requirements while enrolled at PSIA. Note that students need only take ONE of the Sciences Po courses listed in each section to satisfy the corresponding SIPA core requirement
