Established in 1991, the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Rennes, known as Sciences Po Rennes, offers academic degree programs in the social sciences and specialized credentials adapted to the requirements of the labor market.
"Through its 5-year curriculum, Sciences Po Rennes offers an education designed specifically to inculcate in students the varied knowledge they will need as future leaders in business, government, journalism, research, or the nonprofit world. The institution operates on a human scale, with an enrollment of about 1,000, a permanent faculty of 40, and an adjunct faculty of about 100. A special strength of the school is the density and diversity of its international network, which includes more than 100 universities in 37 countries. All students spend their third year abroad, either at a foreign university or in an internship. "
