Why a program of study dedicated to Transatlantic Relations ?
The college in Reims is dedicated to transatlantic relations. Given the development of a truly European perspective on North America, the 60th anniversary of NATO, and the impact of globalization on the evolution of transatlantic relations, this campus is the ideal framework within which students can examine the present and future of the transatlantic question.
The campus will not only welcome guest professors from prestigious Canadian and U.S. universities and research fellows from related think tanks, but will also be a unique forum for debates and conferences on Transatlantic issues as well as on comparative research in the social sciences.
The college in Reims is well placed to answer the transatlantic question, due to the institutional relationships Sciences Po has established with North American university partners. As a member of the Global Public Policy Network with Columbia University, the London School of Economics and National University of Singapore, Sciences Po is represented in New York by the Alliance Program at Columbia University. Furthermore, the Center for the Americas of the Sciences Po International Affairs Division in Paris serves as a resource center for our North American partners and students.
Sciences Po has over eighty institutional partners in the United States and Canada, including Harvard, Columbia, McGill, Princeton, the University of British Columbia, the University of Chicago, the University of Toronto, and Berkeley. This longstanding collaboration has been very fruitful, producing a number of joint degrees and programs: with Columbia University in International Relations, Public Affairs, and Journalism and now a dual PhD in political science; with Georgetown University and McGill University in Law; and with the University of Pennsylvania in finance.
Sciences Po regularly invites guest professors from North America and frequently organizes debates involving specialists in various fields. Over the years, Sciences Po has hosted Joseph Stiglitz, Condoleezza Rice, Justice Steven Bryer, Stanley Hoffman, and Evo Morales, to name but a few.
80 + partnerships with prestigious North American universities: Harvard, McGill, Princeton, University of British Columbia, University of Chicago, University of Toronto, Berkeley
In 2008-2009, 250 Canadian and U.S. students came to study at Sciences Po and 240 Sciences Po students went to Canada and the U.S.
The sister city of Arlington, Virginia, Reims has had strong links with North America since the 18th century, and these bonds intensified over the course of the 20th century. After the First World War, Reims was rebuilt with the help of a U.S. urban planner, and the Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations donated resources to build a children’s hospital, a library, and to restore the cathedral.
During World War II, the future president of the United States, General Eisenhower, used Reims as his headquarters and was later named Honorable Citizen. Many generous American patrons participated in the reconstruction of the city. These historical connections, combined with the fame of champagne, attract numerous American tourists every year.
