In 2011 Macalester signed an exchange agreement with Institut d’Etudes Politiques of Paris (Sciences Po), one of the most prestigious of European universities, specializing in the social sciences. In addition to its reputation for excellence, Sciences Po has two features that should prove attractive to Macalester students. First, it offers courses in both French and English. Second, in addition to its flagship campus in Paris, it also has six satellite campuses around France, each with a regional theme. The campus in Menton, for example, in southeast France, specializes in Islam and the Middle East. Sciences Po accepts visiting students almost exclusively by exchange, so this agreement opens to Macalester students a great university heretofore unavailable.
