Sciences Po Journalism School has created, within its structure, the Media and Narrative Center  and offers Sciences Po students educational resources to acquire skills that will enhance their expertise.


To this end, Sciences Po Journalism School uses the classes and course structures developed in its programs in order to display them to the non-journalist students, the students from PSIA (Paris School of International Affairs) for the academic year 2017-2018, and the students from all of the other masters and Schools in the following years. 


The goals? To teach Sciences Po students, the world's future stakeholders, to write to be read, Apprendre aux élèves de Sciences Po, futurs acteurs du monde, à écrire pour être lus, to structure their thoughts in an op-ed article published in a media, to do a live interview, to address to an international audience, or to interact with a community of viewers on social medias.


L’Ecole de journalisme de Sciences Po créé en son sein le Centre des médias - ou Media and Narrative Center - et met à disposition des étudiants de Sciences Po des ressources pédagogiques pour acquérir les compétences nécessaires à la valorisation de leur expertise. 


Pour ce faire, l’Ecole de journalisme de Sciences Po utilise ainsi des enseignements et des structures de cours développés dans ses programmes afin de les déployer auprès d’étudiants non journalistes, les élèves de PSIA (Paris School of International Affairs) pour l'année 2017-2018, puis ceux d'autres masters et écoles de Sciences Po lors des années suivantes.


Objectifs? Apprendre aux élèves de Sciences Po, futurs acteurs du monde, à écrire pour être lus, structurer leurs idées dans une tribune publiée dans un média, répondre à une interview en direct, à s'adresser à un public international, ou encore à interagir avec une communauté de lecteurs sur les réseaux sociaux.
