One thought on “II. 3 France from 1848 to 1914

  1. Hello, I would like to take the common entrance examination for the 2nd year at sciences po. I would have liked to know the history program Europe 1848-1945 in more detail; namely, what are the major themes, and above all can a subject relate to a particular European country, or only to Europe as a whole? Moreover, if I take political science, which method should I apply? Thank you.
