Course Content

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.
