Introduction to the principles of micro and macro economics,by
Hervé Crès, Guillaume Sarrat de Tramezaigues and Anne Boring
The economics module is obligatory for students who have never studied this subject.
In order to study at Sciences Po students are required to have degree level knowledge in economics in order
to better understand the ins and outs of all of the subjects taught in all of the Master’s courses in Sciences
Po. The classes cover all elements of microeconomics and macroeconomics and, when necessary, a video
tutorial is included.
These elements are not intended to be exhaustive and can be completed by reading the following books:
• Pindyck R: Microeconomics: International Edition, 8th Ed, Pearson, 2012
Krugman P, Wells R: Macroeconomics, 3rd Ed, Worth Publishers, 2012
Introduction to Political Science, by Professor Astrid von Busekist.
Introduction to Political Science is an ambitious project and an unusual class. It’s interactive, virtual, visual
and … concise. I have tried to cover most classical questions political science raises: what political science is
about, how the discipline works (Chapter 1); who the main actors are (in academia and in real life) and how
we study them (Chapter 2); what the classical political regimes are and how we evaluate them (Chapter 3).
Aside from the central narration you will be able to watch many other types of videos- while looking at related
pictures, drawings and photographs. You will be able to access them when the corners of your screen light
20th Century Comparative History US-Europe, by Professor Pap
Law in the World of Multiple Legal Orders, by Jean-Yves Gontier
This course serves a double aim. It performs the conventional function of an introduction to law course,
laying the foundations for understanding the role of law and legal institutions in the contemporary world. At
the same time, however, it acknowledges the necessity - especially for those students who entertain the idea
of a career in law - of appreciating the increasingly multi-jurisdictional character of law. Each week's theme
and readings are meant to enable students to navigate among legal systems and understand the complex
interfaces between and among them.
