Bachelor's degree in History, L3 Geography and Education
Sciences humaines et sociales

Academic year : 2017 / 2018

last update 29/11/2012

    Course objectives and characteristics

    Students enrolled in the Geography and Education option of the History Degree follow a course which is general but comprehensive. Teaching in the third year of the degree focuses on reinforcing general history and human geography, mainly with a view of preparing students for competitive exams to enter the teaching profession.

    With these goals in mind, students take compulsory papers on four major periods in history as well as special modules to consolidate their understanding of relevant disciplines and techniques.  The department offers the possibility of further studies via a Teacher Training Master’s, a research Master’s (two years) or a Doctorate (three years) at the University of Evry-Val-d’Essonne.  The research Master’s Degree in History operates in 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.

     

    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. With formal agreement from the course director, modules can be completed with a professional training internship lasting two to four weeks.

     

     

    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).

     

     

     

    Employment opportunities

    Specialised education posts are the principal career opportunities for graduates, such as entry to the IUFM (Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maîtres; the university teacher-training faculty), preparation to take the C.A.P.E.S., (Certificat d'Aptitude Professionnelle à l'Enseignement Secondaire; the secondary school teaching qualification), and the agrégation (the competitive examination for the recruitment of teachers).  This course is aimed at those who wish to pursue further studies in History, but graduates may also choose to go directly into employment.

    Other than competitive entrance exams, the history degree can also provide opportunities in the community, public services (associations and extra-curricular activities), employment in culture, communication and the press, literature and documentation, commercial services, and public administration.

    In the public sector it can lead to employment in local authorities and the police, it is good training for a variety of competitive exams to enter public administration.

     

     

    Further study

    Students may pursue their studies in this field to Master’s level (bac + 5) or beyond.

     

    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.
