Master’s degree ‘Cultures and Society, XVI-XXIth centuries’ University of Burgundy (Dijon, France)

(XVI-XXIth centuries)

University of Burgundy (Dijon-France)

The master’s degree ‘Cultures and Society’, linked to the ‘Knowledge, norms and sensibilities’ program of the Centre Georges Chevrier, aims to provide training of high quality delivered by teams of teachers and researchers whose work is authoritative in the two privileged fields of the center: ‘Social history, institutions and conflict’ and ‘History of the arts, cultural creation and dissemination’. The program is deliberately international in scope, and is studied on a European scale. This research specialism, organized in two clearly defined parts, aims to make more visible the coherence of the training across the Great East of France, and complements that of the University of France-Comté.
