The Master’s course Crossing the Mediterranean: towards Investment and Integration (MIM) offers an in-depth knowledge of the countries on the southern shores of the Mediterranean and their interactions with contemporary Europe. During the two years the course will provide theoretical interdisciplinary skills relevant to the study of migration in the Mediterranean area and on intercultural mediation, histo-social skills, qualitative and quantitative analysis skills, research techniques on the field of analysis and collected data.
The course is organised alongside l’Université Paul-Valéry 3 Montpellier (UPVM), and in collaboration with the University of Strasbourg, Sousse and Meknès.
Particular attention will be paid to teaching linguistic skills, either for improving knowledge of the French language, French variation in the Mediterranean, or for learning languages from the southern shores of the Mediterranean such as Arabic and Hebrew.
The course is taught in English and French. You will spend three months in Tunisia and Morocco to support the study of Arabic or Moroccan Arabic.
Joint/Double degree available:
The mobility skills acquired in a multilingual environment equip students for professional contexts involving the promotion of sustainable development projects in the Mediterranean area, in Euro-Mediterranean cooperation, in social, cultural, economic and touristic contexts with a more complex vision of the impact of planning in a specific sensitive geopolitical area like the Mediterranean. Students will acquire the competencies needed to enhance the roles of the various civil societies, augmenting and consolidating democratic values, human rights and the legislative role while promoting exchanges and cooperation.
