The bachelor’s programme in Sociology is divided into three phases (L1, L2, L3) and combines the core discipline of sociology with related fields such as anthropology and philosophy. The interdisciplinary character of these courses is crucial. The programme includes theoretical basics and introductions to different sociological fields such as economics, migration, urban sociology, ethnology, work, and aspects of the disciplines mentioned above. It also provides an interface between sociology and politics and culture on which the core of the program is built.
Students in the master’s programme in Sociology can choose from two types of study:
- The Master Recherche track offers a context related to scientific investigation combining a foundation in research methods with a focus on three areas: migration and interethnic relationships, cultural politics, and clinical and psychosocial sociology.
- The Master Professionnell track offers a wider range of opportunities for students to expand their knowledge and specialize in the three fields cited above, as well as in the areas of demography/social change or sociology/political philosophy.
A course catalogue for international students with all courses sorted by faculty is available on their website.
