This distinctive program offers you the opportunity to earn both a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree from UBC and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from Sciences Po (L’Institut d’études politiques de Paris) over four years of intensive study.
You'll take your first two years of coursework in France at one of the Sciences Po regional campuses (Menton, Reims or Le Havre) and your third and fourth years at the UBC Sauder School of Business on the Point Grey campus of UBC-Vancouver.
The Dual Degree program is open to both domestic and international students. The program is not open to students with a previous degree or to students who have already completed any post-secondary studies (direct entry from high school only). French fluency is not required for the Dual Degree program unless you are choosing to study in the Europe-Africa Program in Reims.
If you are unsuccessful in your admission to the Dual Degree program, you still will be considered for admission to the UBC Bachelor of Commerce program. For consideration to the Sciences Po BA program (and not UBC), please contact Sciences Po directly.
