Philosophy and Human Sciences Department

The originality of The Department of Philosophy and Human Sciences is to coordinate a canonical faculty and a set of distinct university institutes, thus guiding two lines of research:

  • Philosophy and Christianity,
  • Philosophy, Ethics, Life Sciences, and Human Sciences.

The Philosophy and Human Sciences department consists of:

THE FACULTY OF PHILOSOPHY

The Faculty of Philosophy, created in 1932, is a teaching and research centre. It endeavours, through dialogue with other disciplines, to promote a methodical reflection on the dimensions of human experience within contemporary culture.

THE DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY - SHS (HUMAN AND SOCIAL SCIENCES)

Since 1990, this department is committed to offering education programmes that will provide specific and cross-disciplinary knowledge and skills useful to every student, whatever his or her professional orientation. To achieve this, the initial education programmes (bachelor's and master's degrees) will continue to evolve, as will continuing education in the socio-educational, health, and psychological fields. Since the research in this department is linked to practice, it is developing exponentially in order to rethink the support and care systems on offer.

THE MEEF MASTER'S DEGREE

This degree is dedicated to training in teaching and education, as well as training in the public and private sectors. As a programme that leads to an academic degree and prepares students for professional life, it is invaluable to all future teachers. As the cornerstone of the preparation for the state’s competitive teacher licensing examinations, the course includes disciplinary, pedagogical and didactic teaching, internships, and the writing of a dissertation.
