Year 1

The first semester is largely reserved for methodological and theoretical deepening. The second half of the first semester also includes an internship or professional orientation, in which the student explores the later professional field on the basis of a concrete question.

The second semester, in addition to following a few courses, is largely devoted to working on the master's thesis, under the supervision of a research project supervisor. A forum is the completion of this part. The student gives an oral presentation with a debate about the research project.
