Study in Paris and New York and obtain Masters 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.
The First year (Sciences Po)
During the first year at Sciences Po students are encouraged to satisfy the maximum amount of SIPA core requirements possible. Please refer to the core mapping document at the top of the page for information on which Sciences Po courses are approved to satisfy SIPA core requirements
The Second year (SIPA)
During the second year at SIPA students will complete any remaining core requirements along with concentration and specialization requirements.
Tuition, Fees and Financial Aid
Students pay the tuition and fees at the school where they are in residence. Dual Degree students will pay Sciences Po tuition and fees in their first year, and SIPA tuition and fees in their second. Students must be enrolled in Columbia University health insurance or have comparable insurance coverage when they are at Columbia during their second year. For students needing U.S. federal student aid, they should contact SIPA financial aid to begin the process. Tuition and fees can be found below:
