  • At the more advanced levels, students take a variety of classes designed to prepare them for study within the French education system, from methodology workshops to small thematic classes on topics related to the social sciences or the humanities.
  • In addition, students at every level have access to Sciences Po lecture classes on topics in social sciences and the humanities taught in both English and French. Past lecture subjects have included French history, French politics, art history,      and international relations.
