Additional courses (preparatory module) to the master course

To access  this Master, students must have a good command of certain subjects. If this is not the case, students must take supplementary classes chosen by the faculty to satisfy course prerequisites.

What is a preparatory module?

It is a set of supplementary classes (courses, practical works, seminars, etc.) from the first cycle (see the non-exhaustive list below). The complementary module (maximum 60 credits) is tailor-made by the jury according to the student's educational background and added to the Master’s programme in order to acquire fundamental knowledge to then pursue the 120 credits of the Master’s programme.

The preparatory module of the Master [120] in Modern Languages and Literatures : General has a double objective: on the one hand, it aims to provide students with knowledge relating to the philological approach, as well as to literary and linguistic analysis (in connection with the languages chosen by the student); on the other hand, it offers an initiation to the specificity of academic discourse and methodology. The acquisition of this knowledge and know-how will enable students to follow the Master's courses with success. This is why students concerned by this complementary module will, as far as possible, follow the courses of this module from the first year of the Master. Students will have the possibility to call upon the faculty's pedagogical advisors to help them in the acquisition of these courses from different undergraduate programmes.
