A world class international research university, Sciences Po ranks amongst the finest institutions in the fields of humanities and social sciences.

Sciences Po stands out for combining approaches and confronting different worldviews. This tradition of diversity and multidisciplinary approach makes Sciences Po an active participant in public debate, a forum where thought meets action. Sciences Po's overarching mission is to educate future leaders in the public and private sectors. However, its ambition extends even further: to educate open-minded and enlightened citizens capable of changing the world and transforming society. Sciences Po's international dimension was established in its founding documents. Driven forward by this vocation for nearly 150 years, today Sciences Po stands out as a world-class university: internationally-recognised degrees and research, a multicultural community and a worldwide network of partners. At Sciences Po, the finest researchers in the social sciences engage in continual dialogue with the greatest practitioners.

With an academic community of more than 200 faculty members and 4,000 lecturers from the professional world, the knowledge we transmit to students is nurtured by innovative research and rooted in reality. Sciences Po recruits its students on the basis of academic excellence. Nevertheless, it was one of the first institutions of higher learning to have fully assumed its social responsibilities by promoting intellectual, geographic and social diversity in its student body. Open to all talents, Sciences Po recruits students in nearly 150 countries and provides financial support to nearly 30% of its student body.
