Applying to One of the Dual Programs
In order to apply to any of the dual degree programs, you simply have to complete the regular application procedures for the M.A. program (see here). Additional requirements for the dual program option will be as follows.
Note that this is only for your information and you do not need to do anything additional at this time, as you will be able to apply to the dual options while in the M.A. program.
Additional Requirements for the Dual Program in International Relations & Diplomacy / Diplomacy & Strategic Negotiation (Double Master)
Students may apply to enter the Université of Paris-Sud (Sceaux) program if they:
Admission into the Université Paris-Sud program is subject to approval of the AGS Academic Committee.
Students who begin AGS in the Spring semester are encouraged to begin the Université de Paris-Sceaux program in their fourth semester (Fall).
Additional Requirements for the Dual program in International Relations & Diplomacy / French and EU Law (M.A.-LL.M.)
Admission to the Cergy-Pontoise LL.M. is contingent on the student having successfully completed the M.A. program and an additional set of four preparatory law courses given at AGS. A pre-law undergraduate degree is not necessary to apply for the M.A.-LL.M. program
Additional Requirements for the Dual Program in International Relations & Diplomacy / International Peace & Conflict Resolution (Double Master)
Candidates may start this dual program at either of the two participating institutions: in France, at the American Graduate School in Paris, or in the United States, at Arcadia University (Philadelphia, PA). Applications must be made to the institution where they wish to start.
Please note that admission into the other institution to pursue the second degree will follow on the condition that the student is in good academic standing at the first institution.
Students pursuing one of the two degrees individually may decide during the course of their studies to opt for the dual degree option. They will then have to work with the academic coordinator of each program to ensure that their curriculum meets the dual degree requirements. However, applicants are encouraged to determine in advance if they wish to follow the dual degree track.

From current issues in the Middle East taught together by an Iranian historian and an Israelli journalist, to NGO management taught by the director of Human Rights Watch in France, every class was fascinating and taught by some of the most impressive people I could ever have imagined. I immediately felt at home in this small but active AGS community because, although students and professors are all from different parts of the world, everyone takes the time to understand each other's perspective. Overall, I would recommend AGS to anyone with a thirst for intellectual stimulation and a drive to not only understand the world of international relations, but engage in it..
