Program overview

The BA Dual Honors is our most advanced arts program. It combines two in-depth training, the first in history, and the other in international studies or intercultural leadership. As part of this baccalaureate, you will learn to better understand the past and the present, while developing the professional skills required to secure your future. The training of this program ends with a concrete experience during an internship, or with a research project carried out alone or in a team.

  • Double specialization:

  • Advanced Major in Intercultural Leadership (48 credits):

The school has two admissions: one in September for all programs and one in January for university programs only.
