Teaching languages: French and English. Both langages are necessary.

The personal and professional future of every individual is marked more and more by life-long learning. In such a context, there is a growing need to assess, on a regular basis, the learning potential and the skill and personality profiles of individuals. These assessments will be used in different areas such as admission to degree programmes, the distribution of jobs, mobility in society, etc. The master’s degree programme in psychology that we offer features key qualifications specific to the assessment field. It consequently gives access to sectors of activity that require the use of assessment tools and methods such as human resources departments, assessment centres, initial and continuing training centres, etc.
