Overview

Sciences Po segment

As a Dual Degree student, you’ll spend the first two years of your studies at one of Sciences Po’s three regional campuses: Menton, or Le Havre, or Reims. Each Sciences Po campus specializes in a particular region of the world, and offers a core curriculum with a heavy linguistic and cultural focus. 

The student body at each campus is diverse, comprised of French and international students, and students from the campus’ region of focus. Courses are taught in English, with additional instruction in French and the languages spoken in the campus’ region of focus.

British Columbia segment

After completing your first two years at Sciences Po, you will begin the last two years of your undergraduate studies in July at the University of British Columbia Vancouver campus in the Faculty of Arts. 

You’ll participate in intensive seminars designed to connect you with your cohort, orient you to campus and research culture at UBC, and connect your two educational experiences. 

The seminars will not only give you a preliminary taste of UBC, but prepare you to engage with your chosen discipline as a researcher and scholar. During your time at UBC, you will further specialize in the social sciences through your chosen major. Like all UBC students, you’ll be encouraged to participate in the campus research culture and experiential learning opportunities.
