Author Bio

My name is Anna, and I was born in Stockholm to Swedish-American parents, however I grew up in Maryland right outside of Washington, D.C. until I was 13 years old. When I was thirteen, I decided to go back to Sweden on my own and start studying at boarding school. In Sweden, I studied the Social Sciences Programme, and graduated from high school in 2014. Nowadays I am in Reims (which is the capital of the Champagne region in France), where I'm currently pursuing my B.A. The Program reflects that of a Liberal Arts degree in the U.S., or 'Statsvetenskap' in Sweden. My major is Competition Law, and I study Intellectual Property Law and Management as my specialisation. My aim with this blog is to keep my readers in-tune with the studies I have here at SciencesPo, but also life outside of school, including my extracurriculars, school events, and much more. Happy reading!

Before going to bed (European time, that is), the night before the election, I remember thinking to myself – Hilary will win, it will be a close call, but she’ll win. When I woke up, I checked my phone and I saw several messages from a group chat with my friends, where people were expressing their shock over the fact that Trump…

New Reforms Underway

Published: November 2, 2016

This week, SciencesPo Paris communicated with the student body that it plans to introduce major reforms to the Undergraduate, as of the start of the next school year in 2017. The changes are many and vast, and we have yet to know all of the details. So far, what we know is that the University plans to move much of the remaining Undergraduate program in Paris to Reims, and by doing so, designating the Paris campus mainly for the Masters programs. Indeed, the Undergraduate program in Paris will remain, but will be very much reduced and the increasing amount of…
