Career opportunities:

MA level studies in humanities within the modern philology field, especially in the case of the French studies which consider the needs of the labour market, tend to strive to produce professionals who meet the increasingly growing requirements of intellectual occupations mostly related to services (field of arts, social sciences track, journalism, text composition, translation, drafting of tenders, etc.), while at the same time prepare them for broader topics for assistant positions related to humanities.

Furthermore, it is important to note the increasing demand for humanities graduates, irrespective of their study tracks, who are equipped with general knowledge, empathy, and high level of communication skills, for positions of deputy manager, expert of human policy, etc.
