About

Sciences Po and LSE have come together to offer outstanding undergraduate students a distinctive dual degree devoted to urban management and policy, the Double Masters in Urban Policy, combining the strengths of two leading international centres of research in city development and urban governance.

This LSE-Sciences Po Double Degree in Urban Policy programme from London School of Economics and Political Science is based on the mutual recognition of curricula and evaluation in the partner university; it offers a top-level education in the area of urban studies to participating students, giving them the opportunity to develop a career focused on local and urban policy, in the private, public or international sectors at the highest level.

This programme is academically supervised by Professor Ian Gordon, Geography and Environment Department, LSE, and Patrick Le Galès, senior researcher at CNRS - CEVIPOF, professor at Sciences Po.

Providing all course requirements have been met, students will graduate with both a Master from Sciences Po in Strategies Territoriales et Urbaines , and an MSc from LSE in Urban Policy.

Programme Structure

Year One
  • At Sciences Po, the academic year runs from early October to the end of June. Students will follow a course of study that covers topics of urban sociology, economics and politics along with elective courses.
Year Two

The second year runs from October until September of the following year. It comprises three terms plus a summer period for completion of a dissertation. Students will follow one of three alternative lines of specialisation, following the teaching programmes (and course options) of either the MSc in Regional and Urban Planning Studies or the MSc Local Economic Development or the MSc Urbanisation and Development.

These are each interdisciplinary courses with international orientations, and taken by students from a wide range of countries. Formal contact hours vary but average 50 for each of the three taught course units which account for 75 per cent of credits for this year. The remainder comes from an independent research dissertation, developed with a supervisor, and completed in July/August, after the formal exams for taught courses.
