Students on the Master  History prepare themselves to, in the course of their socio-professional life, demonstrate the ability to shed light upon the complexities of the history of people and societies which have preceded us and the connections linking them to our present.
At the end of the course, the future historians will have deepened their knowledge and awareness of the themes relating to different historical fields and periods, by situating them within the principal trends in current research. Students will have acquired expert knowledge of research methods in historical studies: able to construct a relevant research problem, gather documentation, analyse and criticise the data collected, reach their own conclusions and communicate the results obtained to different audiences and in different ways. Open to interdisciplinary studies, students will also be capable of employing concepts and methods from social studies in particular in the course of their research. The future historians are aware of the issues, debates and even exploitation to which the past is subject, and can contribute, using a scientific approach, to a better understanding of the present. Using their ability to communicate their knowledge and critical investigation methods, the future historians can enrich societal debates.
On successful completion of this programme, each student is able to :
- Carry out a documentary study and report its conclusions
- Communicate, discuss and collaborate
- Act as independent and responsible actors and carry out continuing development.
- define and organise the elements of a communication project,
- gather documentation,
- identify the connections between theories and audiences,
- argue on the basis of those connections,
- make decisions with a view to defining and fixing the aim to be attained and the cultural output to be made;
