Retour en début de pageStudy objectives

The two years of the master 120 in History, which the Bachelor in History leads directly on to, aim to give the student more in-depth training in methodology and criticism when it comes to detecting and implementing information, and applying it more specifically to a period (ancient times, middle ages, modern times, contemporary period) or to a field of history, with a view to reaching a personal summary on a given subject (masters dissertation).

The course helps the student develop skills in gathering information, critical analysis and implementing both.

Through its different focuses, the degree prepares students for careers in teaching, research, promoting local heritage, management and documentary conservation.
