The master's degree in Humanities is focused on "the digital revolution through the lens of Social and Human Sciences". It is an interdisciplinary project within the UCA's Institute of Literature, Languages, Humanities and Social Sciences, bringing together 8 research units (3 Joint Research Units : IRHIM, LAPSCO and Territoires and 6 Research Units : ACTé, CELIS, CHEC, ComSocs, LRL and PHIER), a federative Research Service Unit (the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme of Clermont) and 5 components (UFR Lettres, Culture, Sciences Humaines, UFR Langues, Cultures et Communication, UFR Psychologie, Sciences Sociales, Sciences de l’Éducation, UFR Sciences et Techniques des Activités Physiques et Sportives, Institut National Supérieur du Professorat et de l'Éducation).

The aim of this Master's programme is to train professionals in the digital revolution in the fields of Psychology, Humanities, Languages, History, Geography, Education Sciences or Physical and Sports Activities Sciences and Techniques.


The aim is to address "multimodal innovation to design sustainable lifestyles and production" in connection with the transformations brought about by the digital revolution. The social and human sciences have an expertise, a specific mode of analysis allowing to understand these civilizational upheavals and to propose modalities of adaptations and innovations to conceive these sustainable models of life and production. Thus, the Humanities Master's programme focuses on "The digital revolution through the lens of SHS". It proposes a resolutely multidisciplinary approach considering the question in all its facets: anthropological, cognitive, cultural, epistemological, historical, territorial...
Students will acquire the tools to be actors of innovation, and will be able to adapt to various contexts and disciplines. This ability to adapt is a major skill in a world where professional mobility facilitated by the digital revolution has significantly increased.
