The Europe-Africa Undergraduate programme addresses the relationship between Europe and Africa, in a multidisciplinary approach and a unique methodology to Sciences Po.

During the first year, students are introduced primarily to the concepts and methods of five core disciplines: law, economics, history, sociology and political science. This multidisciplinary curriculum is supplemented by specific courses covering the continent as a whole. The programme is bilingual.

Language Requirements & Objectives

Courses are taught both in French and in English. Courses are taught in French during the first semester, but adaptations are possible for Anglophone students (B1-B2 level in French minimum). Anglophone students also receive intensive French language training. Almost half of the courses are taught in English during the second semester.

All students must also study a second language, to be chosen from Arabic, Portuguese and Swahili. Other African languages may be introduced in partnership with INALCO (National Institute of Oriental Languages and Civilizations).

In the second year, students follow a bilingual French-English curriculum. They are invited to choose specific themes in each of the disciplines taught at Sciences Po and also to choose a discipline for more in-depth study. The courses taught during this second year will focus more particularly on comparative aspects and regional differences within Africa.

Another important educational objective of this undergraduate programme is to foster teamwork and the spirit of innovation through art workshops (introduction to African arts), work on a group project and an introduction to research (research seminar in the second year) aimed at encouraging contact between students. The multicultural experience of a programme designed to bring together students from very different backgrounds helps develop a spirit of open-mindedness and mutual understanding.

The third year must be spent abroad, generally in Africa, either in the form of a study abroad programme or an internship in a company or public institution.

After graduating students can join the Paris campus for the master’s degree, or continue studies at another university in or outside France.

The Reims Campus is an international campus and also offers double Bachelor Degree Programmes with Columbia University (New-York) and the University of British Columbia.
