It offers five-year training programmes in three interconnected areas: Public Affairs, International Affairs and Communication. Benefiting from 60 years of training experience, Sciences Po Lyon students acquire a wide academic knowledge and a high degree of professionalism, which are praised on the labour market.

Master in Public Policies and Government

The master in Public Policies and Government offers exchange opportunities for students of partner universities in two areas:

  • Policy analysis and comparative public policies
  • Evaluation and monitoring of policies and programmes

As far as evaluation is concerned, a part of the training is delivered in English and English can be used as the active language. Students however need to use French as a passive language (listening and reading) at least.


Sciences Po Lyon hosts several students per year during the 1st semester, mainly in the evaluation area. Outgoing students go abroad in the 1st semester of their second year. Practical information for incoming and outgoing students can be consulted here.
