Interested in a unique international learning experience at two top schools? Check out the dual degree program at UBC and Sciences Po!

The University of British Columbia and Sciences Po in France are offering a four-year dual degree program for students majoring in history, economics, or political science. Students will spend Year 1 and Year 2 at one of the Sciences Po campuses (Le Havre, Menton, or Reims) and the final two years at UBC.  Fluency in French is not essential unless students wish to enroll in the Europe-Africa option. At the conclusion of their studies, students earn either a BA from both institutions (if they are in Arts) or a BCom degree from UBC and a BA from Sciences Po (if they choose the business stream).

In order to be considered, students must first apply for admission to the UBC Faculty of Arts or Sauder School of Business. They must then complete a supplemental application and submit this by January 9, 2017. An interview will be required. More information can be found at http://sciencespo.ubc.ca. You could also connect with Will Hanna (Class of 2016) who is enjoying his first year in the program!
