Interdisciplinary approach


Value of interdisciplinary studies

Interdisciplinary studies take into account the complexity of our changing world and prepare you for it by sharpening your critical thinking and creativity. They will make you a person more aware of contemporary issues, open to the world and willing to play an active role. In fact, it's the kind of person that the people responsible for hiring in many organizations and companies look for.


Science to better decode the real

The evolution that we observe in the history of science shows us that at one time it was very useful to cut out the fields of knowledge in order to discover the secrets. Although the merits of this approach remain, current needs to understand many human and social phenomena call for an inclusive approach of diverse disciplines.


The originality of UdeH

The Université de Hearst then offers, more specifically through its offer of bachelor's degree programs in human and social issues, a study environment that will provide you with a general culture by approaching topics from a more interdisciplinary angle. In this bachelor's degree program in human and social issues, you will study certain phenomena by simultaneously borrowing glasses from various disciplines, including psychology, sociology, literature, history and geography.


Define this notion of general culture

These programs are based on a coherent set of mandatory courses designed to guarantee this general culture that everyone praises, both in the school system and in the world of work. A unique combination of courses from many disciplines has been designed to recognize in these programs:

  • the place of a solid scientific background
  • the inevitable legacy of the humanities (languages, literature, philosophy, history)
  • the relevance of approaching objects of study with an interdisciplinary approach
  • the importance of global and local in the way we look at the world
  • the need for practical training, through internships, to complete the more theoretical part of university training
  • the need for fluency in the French language
  • the importance of knowing a second language (English or Spanish)


Opening on the world


Study trip

Every year, UdeH goes on an adventure in a foreign country as a study trip. Since 2005, students from the Université de Hearst have visited countries in Europe, South America and Central America. This year, India is in the spotlight. OPA!


Credited trip

On the study trip, there are other opportunities for student mobility. The bulk course formula favors the supply of credited journeys: trips during which a language, a social phenomenon or a human issue is studied, observed or analyzed. A Spanish course could very well take place in Mexico, thus providing an ideal cultural context for learning the language.


Student mobility program

Opportunities for international or Canadian university student mobility are gradually taking shape in UdeH's programming. Joining the discovery to the study contributes to the development of an impressive portfolio of experiences, allowing you to better integrate the world of work and play your role citizen.
