    The Expert Question

  • 27:15

    The Expert Question: Sciences Po and its students seem to have a fairly liberal view on politics. Does it treat rising extreme right movements as curious phenomena or as legitimate political movements that should have representation?


    Does it lower the chances of being accepted for a program of the PSIA when you also apply for a double degree program?


    Many of your students I have talked to are multicultural, have grown up all over the world and have done international internships. Is my profile still interesting for PSIA if I am French and haven't done an internship related to international relations?


    Is it common to choose 2 thematic concentrations? I am interested in Human Rights and Environment.
