Sciences Po

The Institut d'études politiques de Paris (French pronunciation: ​[lɛ̃stity detyd pɔlitik dəpaˈʁi]; Paris Institute of Political Studies), simply referred to as Sciences Po (French pronunciation: ​[sjɑ̃sˈpo]), is a public research and higher education institution in Paris, France, which specializes in social sciences, politics and international affairs. It has the status of grand établissement, which allows its admissions process to be both rigorous and highly selective.

Established in 1872 as the École Libre des Sciences Politiques, Sciences Po has traditionally educated France's political and diplomatic elite, and it is broadly considered to be one of the world's most reputable and prestigious schools of the social sciences. The main Paris campus is located near the Seine River, between Boulevard Saint Germain and Boulevard Raspail. It is housed primarily in 17th- and 18th-century mansions located on the Left Bank, on and around Rue Saint-Guillaume, Rue des Saints Pères and Rue de l'Université (in the 7th arondissement).
