How It Works




Sciences Po
Founded in 1872, Sciences Po is France's leading university in the social sciences. For over 140 years, Sciences Po has educated decision-makers of the public and private sectors. Sciences Po is differentiated by its strongly international character: of the 13,000 students in the institution, 46% are international students originating from 150 countries. Sciences Po also holds a high standard of social responsibility and continues to play a pioneering role in the promotion of diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. 30% of the student body receive financial aid at Sciences Po. In 2000, this number was 6%. Over the last decade, Sciences Po has integrated digital tools into its programmes (shared work spaces, eCourses, Moodle, online map library, Controversy Mapping, Forccast Project, etc.) and has naturally migrated towards MOOC teaching platforms as well as other innovative teaching methods.

Teacher who tech about Urban Sociology in this course which me know anymore. Thank!

thank u

This is one of the better MOOCS in Coursera. So relevant to my work and the discussions are thought-provoking. Hoping there is a sequel. All best.

Really enjoyed this course and the way in which it was presented.

Stimulating and thoughtful with lots of ideas that I found relevant to my own experiences in the UK and Hong Kong. As a retired Geography Teacher, with a particular interest in the historical geography of rural settlement, I joined the course out of an almost casual interest in how the geography and sociology of urban settlement has developed over the last decade. I am now 'hooked' on the idea of a 'globalising urban world' and am reading 'on' and around the subject with renewed interest and making plans to visit some of the cities mentioned in the course.

Thank you for opening up this fascinating insight into the world of the 21st century.
