Languages on the programme
All students specialise in one European language.
The dual BA does not offer the other two possibilities normally existent for the BA ESPS of two major languages or one major language and one minor.
At Sciences Po students will study part of the curriculum in the language of specialisation, with the exception of Italian and German, which are studied ab initio. (Note: if applying to the Nancy campus, B2 German is required.) Social science courses will be offered in French, German and Spanish in the relevant campuses.
