Sciences Po Bachelor of Arts (BA) in the social sciences and humanities, Latin America specialisation, Poitiers Campus Program By Sciences Po |Top Universities

In conjunction with the multidisciplinary programme in the social sciences common to the entire Undergraduate College, students have the opportunity to focus on the political, geopolitical and economic issues of Latin America, in a comparative perspective with the EU, particularly the Iberian peninsula.

The programme is taught mainly in French, with some courses in English and Spanish. Students explore Latin America's history and contemporary questions such as democratic issues, how economies are integrating into the globalised economy, urban development, and regional and continental integration.

Students can also study the two main languages of the geographic area: Spanish and Portuguese.

The Poitiers campus has about 200 students, over half of whom are international students, mainly from Latin America and Spain. This cultural diversity makes the first two years on campus an international experience in itself, which is capped off with the third year abroad studying at one of Sciences Po's 470 partner universities or with a dual degree.

There are many sporting and cultural events (fr.) (such as the Art and Politics Festival) to enrich campus life. Students are encouraged to organise and take part in debates, conferences, sporting and cultural events, etc. All student initiatives engage with the wider world, helping students gain a sense of responsibility and commitment to the local community.

Thanks to the small class sizes, students work in a pleasant environment and enjoy very close attention from the faculty for both their studies and extra-curricular activities.
