The Paris Institute of Political Studies (French: Institut d'études politiques de Paris, also known as Sciences Po [sjɑ̃s po] or Sciences Po Paris) is a public research university located in Paris, France that holds the status of grande école and grand établissement. The institute maintains additional campuses in Dijon, Le Havre, Menton, Nancy, Poitiers and Reims, and is known primarily for its academic offerings and research in political science, history, economics, law and sociology. The institute was established in 1872 by Émile Boutmy as the École libre des sciences politiques in the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War as a private institution to modernize education for French civil servants. It offered instruction in political science, a relatively new field of study at the time. Following World War II, the school was nationalized and re-established as a public institution after growing criticisms towards its faculty-led to calls for the school's closure. After being reformed in 1985, Sciences Po began to offer courses beyond political science that would lead to careers beyond public service. As of 2021, 80% of Sciences Po graduates are employed in the private sector. More information...
