Bachelor of Arts

The Bachelor of Arts provides a solid foundation of expertise in two disciplinary fields belonging to languages and literature and/or historical sciences and/or philosophy and theoretical sciences. By studying a third disciplinary field or a range of options, students will have the possibility of expanding their awareness of cultural diversity in the humanities. By the end of their Bachelor's degree, and in a second language if necessary, students will be able to:

- identify corpora of different types and from different periods in each of the main disciplinary fields,
- compare these same corpora using methodological tools and research instruments that allow them to be interpreted by placing them in an historical, linguistic, cultural or social context,
- analyse these same corpora in relation to specific themes or issues and from a range of different perspectives,
- relate the knowledge acquired in one of the main disciplinary fields to the knowledge acquired in other disciplinary field(s) studied,
- express themselves orally and in writing on complex subjects in a clear and well-structured manner,
- identify, through analysis and synthesis of information, the issues at stake on a given topic, in addition to putting various points of view into perspective and taking a position on the topic
- build on their knowledge with a high degree of autonomy, using third languages where appropriate,
- cooperate with other students in group work,
while respecting intellectual property values and ethics.
Duration :From 6 to 10 semesters, with exceptions, for the Bachelor of Arts degree worth 180 ECTS credits. 1 credit ECTS = 25-30 hours of workload
