Students will complete the dual degree program in 24 months, spending the first year at Sciences Po in Paris and the second year at the Munk School of Global Affairs in Toronto. All students will complete an internship (12-16 weeks) during the summer of the first year.
This dual master’s degree program builds on a long-standing collaboration between Sciences Po and the University of Toronto, whose first exchange program was created in 2001.
Studying at leading institutions in both Paris and Toronto, students will benefit from varied perspectives on public policies and global affairs in two different contexts (European and North American), thus enhancing their own global experience. By combining a Master in Public Policy with a Master of Global Affairs, students will gain complementary perspectives on the pressing challenges of the 21st century, drawing upon the outstanding academic strengths of each institution. Graduates of the dual degree program will be uniquely positioned to enter the field of global affairs worldwide.
“This dual master’s degree is a first for the Munk School and we’re thrilled to have an experienced partner in Sciences Po,” said Stephen Toope, Director of the Munk School of Global Affairs. “It’s fashionable today to focus on cracks in Europe, but however the winds shift, these are strong countries that will be leaders in shaping the world’s future. We need to build bridges and understanding.”
“We are very glad to combine for the first time our Master in Public Policy with a Master of Global Affairs provided by the Munk School,” said Yann Algan, dean of the Sciences Po School of Public Affairs. “This dual degree aims to bring to our future public affairs professionals a unique and complementary understanding of global challenges.”
Students may choose to study in English or French at Sciences Po. At the Munk School of Global Affairs, courses will be taught in English. The first cohort of students in the dual degree program will start classes in Paris in September 2018 with an expected intake of 10 to 12 students.
