This history degree course, with a minor in either geography
or political science, enables students to find their place in the professional world by teaching them about social, ideological and economic issues and their influence on the process of globalization. Students willing to understand how cultures and civilizations have evolved all over the world may find in this history course a response to their needs.
The knowledge of several foreign languages (English, Spanish, Russian, Chinese or Arabic) provides a multicultural approach to other civilizations, particularly useful in foreign exchanges.
An introduction to geopolitics, political science and/or
archeology provides basic knowledge in the grammar of
civilizations, particularly useful for future teachers confronted with cultural diversity in the classroom, but also for civil servants, librarians, managers or consultants in companies or international institutions.
