Sociology

Présentation
Learning outcome targets

The common educational objectives, shared by all ten courses, are as follows:
• training in the fundamental concepts and paradigms of sociology
• learning about the range of survey methods, both qualitative and quantitative, from basic to more advanced techniques
• development of a critical and reflective approach through teaching and the writing of research dissertations in M1 and M2, as well as professional or research work placements
• practice of disciplinary, cultural, linguistic and international open-mindedness.

The acquisition of these sociological skills is undertaken during 10 innovative courses aimed at research, employment or non-specific purposes. This complementary nature of what is offered is an essential characteristic of the Sociology course in that it aims to best meet the aspirations of students with diverse backgrounds. For example, three courses are offered as apprenticeships.

Through its general philosophy, its common governance and its courses, the Master's degree in Sociology offers a high-level generalist education which also places strong emphasis on different areas of specialisation, such as work, employment, training, business and industrial relations; public action - from local to supranational levels; production and implementation of law; science and technology; data science.

Post-graduate profile

La mention de sociologie vise à former des spécialistes avancé.e.s de la discipline. Formé.e.s aux développements théoriques et méthodologiques de la sociologie, ils et elles seront aptes à les mobiliser dans des contextes professionnels divers, exigeants et stimulants, en premier lieu dans la recherche et l'enseignement supérieur en sciences sociales, et dans l'expertise au sein des organisations publiques et privées.

Transfer paths

Sur la base de l'architecture commune de la mention, la possibilité de s'orienter vers un autre parcours de la mention, dès le semestre 2, est ouverte.

Par ailleurs, nous offrons aux étudiant.e.s qui le souhaitent la possibilité, chaque semestre, d'aller suivre, en substitution d'un cours de leur propre parcours, un enseignement proposé dans l'un des deux autres établissements porteurs de la mention. Cette substitution repose sur une connaissance par tou.te.s les étudiant.e.s de l'ensemble de l'offre de formation de la mention Sociologie et se fait avec l'accord préalable des responsables des deux parcours (d'origine et d'accueil).
