Programme structure

The student’s programme includes:

  • A common core curriculum (30 credits)
  • A final specialisation (30 credits)
  • One of more of the major courses or elective courses listed below.

The graduation project is normally completed in the second year. However, students may, depending on the nature of their project, choose to take their classes in the first or second year so long as their course prerequisites allow it. This is particularly the case for students completing part of their program abroad.

If during the student’s previous studies, he or she has already taken a course that is part of the programme (either required or elective) or they have participated in an academic activity that is approved by the programme commission, the student may count this activity toward their graduation requirements (but only if they respect programme rules). The student will also verify that he/she has obtained the minimum number of credits requested for the approval of their diploma as well as for the approval of their major (in order to include their academic distinctions in the diploma supplement).

These types of programmes will be submitted for approval by the relevant Master’s degree programme commission.

For a programme-type, and regardless of the focus, options/or elective courses selected, this master will carry a minimum of 120 credits divided over two annual units, corresponding to 60 credits each.
