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.

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.
