The Societies and Humanities Institute

Humanities and social sciences at the heart of your success!

The ISH has nearly 70 courses, from DEUST to Master, covering almost all the disciplines specific to the Humanities conceived in a broad sense . Many of these courses, for some from the 2nd year of study, are alternating and thus offer students an apprentice status - nearly 500 each year -, opening the way to the professional world.
In our masters programs, research is also encouraged through mobility grants and the awarding of several scholarships, at the Master 2 level, for the development of UPHF's scientific axes.
