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.

As citizens of the world community, AGSers share a deep will to improve international state of affairs. This drive for change translates into prescriptive discussion between students and teachers, not simply criticism. I most admire this quality about AGS and know that because we have the will to improve the system, we are the way for change.
