The Ph.D program in History is directed by Sciences Po’s Doctoral School.
The first two years correspond to the Master's degree, during which students take history classes at the Doctoral School. To earn their degree at the end of their second year, they are to write a research paper. Students may then prepare for the agrégation (the highest state teaching qualification) by taking Sciences Po's preparatory class. Afterwards, they may begin a Ph.D dissertation. At the same time, they take seminars at Sciences Po.
Masters and Ph.D students can access seminars and research groups offered by the Center for History at Sciences Po.
