FU Scpo Program



Fudan-Sciences Po “Europe and Asia in Global Affairs”

Double Degree (DD) Program


1. Fudan University and SIRPA at a Glance

Founded in 1905, Fudan University has been being one of the top universities in China and well-known in the world. Its name "Fudan", literally meaning "(heavenly light shines) day after day", indicates inexhaustible self-reliance and industriousness. It is located in a cosmopolitan global city, Shanghai, also an important economic center of China and the world.


School of International Relations and Public Affairs (SIRPA) is a leading school in international relations, political science and public administration in China. It aims to train the best talents for state and public affairs, and potential academics. The subject of international relations in SIRPA is ranked in the most first level in China. It attracts hundreds foreign students of different level from undergraduate, master to Ph.D., and various exchange program participants.


2. Introduction of the DD Program

The Double Degree Program on Europe and Asia in Global Affairs was established by Fudan University and Sciences Po in 2010. It provides students who are interested in analyzing European and Asian affairs from both comparative and international relations perspectives with the excellent research network between Fudan University and Sciences Po.


This program is aimed, at the same time, at European specialists who would like to deepen their understanding of Europe through the comparison to Asia; at Asian specialists who aspire to strengthen their understanding of Asia in relation to other regions, and at international relations specialists who are eager to acquire a more specific insight on the challenges and content of Europe-Asia relations.


The DD program lasts two academic years. The first year will be spent at Sciences Po, in the Master Program of European Affairs, and the second year will take place within the School of International Relations & Public Affairs at Fudan University in the Master Program of International Politics. Students remain enrolled in both institutes for both years; they will therefore benefit from all the students' services (free access to library, student unions, career services). Courses are multidisciplinary and students will have International Relations, History, Economics, Law, and Political Science with focus on Europe and Asia in Global Affairs. Students will follow two language classes at Sciences Po, preferably chosen within Chinese, French and English. At Fudan, all courses will be offered in English, although non-Chinese students are highly recommended to learn Mandarin by taking Mandarin classes offered by the International Cultural Exchange School.


Assessment will be the same as for the regular students enrolled in the school where the students study. A two-month internship is mandatory after the second semester, between June and September. At Fudan University, students will write a master thesis. Final graduation will rely on the validation by the student of both years of the program. Therefore, students get a temporary graduation in July at Sciences Po and graduate definitely once all the program is validated at Fudan University in the following year.


More details about the DD program can be found at the Sciences Po website.
