The Paris Institute of Political Studies (French: Institut d'études politiques de Paris), commonly referred to as Sciences Po Paris or just Sciences Po (IPA: [sjɑ̃s po]), is a grande école and grand établissement located in Paris and other cities in France.
It was founded in Paris in 1872 as a private instite to promote a new class of French politicians in the aftermath of the French defeat in the Franco-Prussian War. It was re-founded in 1945 as a semi-public institute, after criticism of its attitude during WW2. Since the mid-1990s, Sciences Po was substantially reformed to broaden its focus to prepare students for the private sector also and diversified and internationalized its student body and curriculum. The Sciences Po curriculum now incorporates courses in various branches of the social sciences on top of political science, such as law, economics, history, and sociology. Sciences Po also expanded outside Paris by establishing additional campuses in Dijon, Le Havre, Menton, Nancy, Poitiers, and Reims.
