Sciences Po - Peking University

Dual Master's Degree in International Relations

Prospectus for 2017 Entry

October, 2016

 

About the Program

The Sciences Po-PKU Dual Master's Degree is a collaborative program on general international studies and is multidisciplinary by nature, which covers political science, international political economy, and emerging subjects like energy and environment in international studies. It emphasizes multi-cultural perspectives on global security and developmental issues and provides a unique opportunity for students to study international affairs at Paris in Europe and Beijing in Asia.

Program Overview

The dual degree Sciences Po–PKU is a two-year full-time academic program. Students spend their first year studying at Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA), Sciences Po, where they choose between the 7 specialised masters offered in international affairs. In the second year, students join the School of International Studies (SIS) at Peking University to study a Master of International Relations with an emphasis on security and development issues and a regional focus on China and the Asia-Pacific region.

Students remain enrolled in both institutions for both years; they will therefore benefit from all the students’ services (free access to library, student unions, career services…).

Year 1 at Sciences Po

During the first year of the dual degree, students join the Paris School of International Affairs at Sciences Po (PSIA).

Starting in 2014-2015, students joining PSIA may choose one of the following master’s programs during the first year of the dual degree:

  1. Master in International Security
  2. Master in International Public Management
  3. Master in International Economic Policy
  4. Master in Environmental Policy
  5. Master in International Development
  6. Master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action
  7. Master in International Energy

Dual degree students have to complete the required courses related to their chosen Master at PSIA. In addition, dual degree students must take at least one course on China during their year at PSIA during either the first or the second semester. Dual degree students will follow one language class at Sciences Po per semester.

The course assessment will be the same as that of regular students enrolled at the school where the students study. For more information, go to http://www.sciencespo.fr/psia/content/dual-degree-peking-university.

Year 2 at Peking University

During the second year of the dual degree, students join the School of International Studies at Peking University (SIS-PKU), majoring in International Relations.

At Peking University the students will write a thesis. According to Peking University’s requirement, the students should submit a dissertation and perform oral defense of the dissertation by the end of Semester 4.

At Peking University, while Chinese students will take French language classes, international students will take Chinese language classes.

Final graduation will rely on the validation by the student of both years of the programme. Therefore, students will get a temporary graduation in July of the first year at Sciences Po, while the final graduation is upon the completion of all required studies at Peking University in the second year.
