At the end of the first year, students decide in which discipline they will complete their dissertation and whether to choose a Master of Arts worth 90 ECTS credits or a Master of Arts with specialisation worth 120 ECTS credits.
Specialisation programs are study plans worth 30 ECTS credits that lead to a Master of Arts with Specialisation. Through an interdisciplinary approach, they offer students the possibility, as the case may be, to deepen their knowledge in a particular field or to acquire a first experience of research or work in a professional environment.
The Master of Arts with specialisation opens the door for advanced students to cutting-edge research and academic careers. Several specialisation programmes also offer professional experience in maximising the benefits of the artistic, historical, linguistic and cultural heritage.
Master of Arts students develop numerous skills that are beneficial in the world of work: independence, sense of responsibility and organisation, discernment, analytical and argumentation skills, mastery of written and oral expression.
These strong points are greatly appreciated in todayís society and in fields such as the media and communications, international organisations, cultural institutions, museums, teaching, and the public and private sectors.
