Sciences Po Lille (Institut d’Études Politiques, IEP) is charged with study and research of contemporary politics, though students take a range of classes across the social sciences. The College of William & Mary’s exchange program with Lille is ideal for French majors or minors with an interest in the social sciences and politics, or for social science majors with intermediate or better French language skills. Classes are offered in economics, international relations, French political life, sociology, political anthropology, and more.  W&M students may choose from the full university curriculum and courses are offered in a variety of languages, including English. Please note, 8 ECTS credits are equivalent to 4 W&M credits.

Lille, capital of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France, is a city of contrasts. It is home to a city center with buildings dating from the 17th century and outlying areas built up around modern industrialization. In and around Lille there are hundreds of museums, historic sites and buildings, and parks and recreation areas. The Palais des Beaux Arts de Lille, the Fine Arts Museum, houses a collection of paintings, sculptures, and ceramics dating from the 15th century. It is considered the second most important art collection in France, following the Louvre. The city has a vibrant nightlife and on  weekends locals meander around Lille’s many markets.

The tuition exchange agreement between the College of William & Mary and Sciences Po Lille allows W&M students to pay their regular tuition to W&M while taking classes in Lille. The exchange program is best for VA in-state residents. Students not chosen for the exchange program have the option of applying for direct enrollment, which requires W&M students to pay tuition to Sciences Po Lille. Out-of-state students often find direct enrollment the best option. All W&M students pay housing, meals and fees on site in Lille. There is no on campus housing available on this program, but staff and the international student association at Lille will offer students some assistance in finding suitable accommodations.

The Reves Center advisor for the Sciences Po Lille exchange program is Theresa Johansson.
