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:

  • have completed one year of study at AGS and have earned 24 credits

  • are in good academic standing

  • have an intermediate command of French

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.

  • To start the program in France and apply to the American Graduate School in Paris, please follow the regular M.A. application procedure (see here)

  • To start the program in the US and apply to Arcadia University, please click here.

  • Students who are already enrolled at Arcadia University and wish to pursue the dual program with AGS, please contact our Academic Coordinator at

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.

quote leftIn addition to the many benefits of studying international relations in a highly specialized program, located in a dynamic city that fosters learning the discipline, my overall experience at AGS has been enhanced by an outstanding administrative staff that is diligent, professional and, above all, friendly. Their tireless efforts are key in making the experience of AGS students positive. I have done my best to thank them with good French desserts and bad American humor!quote right
