Study in Paris and Berlin

SciencesPo’s School of Public Affairs in Paris and the Hertie School in Berlin have joined forces to offer a dual master’s degree programme in public policy.

This two-year programme combines the study of economics, public policy and management. It is designed for young professionals who navigate the borders of the public and private sectors and want to gain expertise in the management and evaluation of public policy in the European context.

During the first year, students are enrolled in SciencesPo’s MPP programme and take courses in Paris. In the summer after the first year, students move directly to Berlin and are enrolled in the Hertie School’s MPP programme. Before graduating at the end of the second year, students must complete a full-time internship of at least 6 weeks, which is usually done in the summer between the first and second year.

Students in the dual degree programme may not take a gap year and thus are unable to participate in the Hertie School's Professional Year programme.
