Bachelor's degree in History

Bachelor's degree in History, L3 Civilisations and Societies
Sciences humaines et sociales

Academic year : 2017 / 2018

last update 29/11/2012

    Course objectives and characteristics

    Students enrolled in the Civilisations and Societies option of the History Degree follow a course which focuses on History, but concentrates on offering a more comprehensive approach to the discipline.  Teaching in the third year of the degree focuses on reinforcing students’ general historical knowledge, mainly with a view of further studies via a Master’s degree. However, this pathway also prepares students for competitive exams for teaching and other professions. 
    With these goals in mind, students take compulsory papers on four major periods in history as well as special subjects focusing on disciplines closely related to history.  Our department has an established partnership with the LHEST (Laboratoire d’Histoire Economique, Sociale et des Techniques), a renowned research laboratory with a team of highly-respected lecturers and researchers.

    The department offers the possibility of further studies via Master’s (two years) and doctoral (three years) programmes within the Evry SHS post-graduate school or in partnership with post-graduate schools in other universities and higher education institutions

     

    Course structure

    The final year of the degree (L3) marks the beginning of specialisation. 

    It is broken down into two teaching semesters each followed by examinations. Lessons, Lectures (also known as CM), and Practical Seminars and Tutorials (TD and TP) are grouped into Teaching Units (TU).  Some subjects are compulsory, others are chosen by students from a range of options. These optional papers offer students the chance to study topics of interest from the course in greater detail and/or to discover topics from other disciplines and to explore inter-disciplinary approaches.

     

    Accompagnement pédagogique

    Students receive academic support in various forms throughout their studies :

    • Access to online services (academic portal, course resources, personal online progress monitoring…),
    • A designated supervising tutor,
    • Assistance in orientation towards the Masters provided by the teaching staff, the Department of Information and Orientation of High School Students and Undergraduates (PIOLE),
    • Certificates in languages and information technology as part of the degree (CLES, C2I).

     

     

    Terms of admission

    For admission to the third year (L3), students must have 120 academic credits (ECTS) from years one and two of this course, or 60 academic credits majoring in History in another field or submission of an application with the formal agreement of the course director.
