Additional Degree Options: How to Apply

Additional degree options are open to all AGS students enrolled in the Master of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy in partnership with third-party institutions. While you are encouraged to indicate your interest in these options during your application to AGS, application to the partner program won't happen until after you are enrolled at AGS. Admission is contingent on meeting the following eligibility criteria during the M.A. program at AGS.

Who is eligible and how to apply ?

While the program at Université Paris-Saclay is highly selective and admits only 40 students out of the 500-600 applications that it receives each year, AGS applicants who meet the conditions listed above will be short-listed for admission and be granted an interview with the program directors.
