Teaching Modalities

The third year of the Bachelor’s program in Public Policy consists of a common core and specialties for each track, as well as electives available to all students that allow for a variety of approaches and a personalized curriculum.

Classes are divided over two semesters from September to December and from January to April. They are either lectures or 6pm seminars (with a few exceptions). Students can also choose to take seminars, classes, and workshops at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS Ulm).

The program represents a substantial time commitment on the part of the students, who have to prepare for and attend classes, study at the library, and do individual research. Evaluation takes the form of final examinations and continuous assessment.

Internships and Supervised Projects

Students have the option of doing an internship once they have completed their coursework and exams. The university can sign internship agreements with public, private, and volunteer organizations. The length of these internships is at the discretion of the student and the organization. The program directors will ensure that the internship aligns with the student’s studies.
