Two Bachelor’s degree course tracks are available for the 2013-2017 period, with courses divided between the Faculty and the ESPE (teacher training institution):

Course track 1: Educational mediation and counselling in training

Teaching content specific to the professional fields of continuing education, educational intervention and mediation, counselling and guidance in training and employment.

Course track 2: Teaching in schools and educational action

Teaching content specific to the professional fields of scholastic and extracurricular support, educational support, educational organisation either within a school setting or in the voluntary sector and community life.


Professional Bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Management – Specialisation: Training and Support

The course programme totals 497 hours (+ a 12-week internship). The programme is designed for several types of candidates: professionals or jobseekers in continuing education; individuals in work-linked training / sandwich courses (apprenticeship contract, vocational training contract); and students in initial education (who have already completed either the 2nd year of a Bachelor’s degree, a DEUST [scientific and technical university studies diploma], a BTS [Advanced Technician’s Certificate] or a DUT [University Technology Diploma]) who have professional experience (internships or contracts) relevant to the course programme content. Candidates are selected based on their applications and an interview.

Starting with the 2013-2014 academic year, the Professional Bachelor’s degree in Training and Support will take place in distance learning mode. Only two courses will be given on site: the first (“Communication”) at the beginning of the study programme and the second (“Carrying out a training sequence”) in the middle of the programme.

The programme will begin on 10 December 2013 and end on 3 December 2014 (excluding the dissertation defence period).

Professional Bachelor’s degree in Communication Activities and Techniques

Starting with the 2013-2014 academic year, the professional Bachelor’s degree in Communication Activities and Techniques will be offered exclusively in “distance learning” mode.

Based on course feedback from all the programmes offered since 2001, as well as the development of online technology and e-learning, the teaching staff at the Faculty of Education Sciences has decided to offer several new study possibilities. The new teaching structure brings together a common core and two different course tracks:

Specialisation: Multimedia projects

  • Course track 1: Web design
  • Course track 2: Engineering e-learning and Scientific communication


The Master’s degree in Education, Training and Communication brings together 5 specialisations that will be organised as follows:

Specialisation: Designing training technology

The former specialisation in Learning and Mediation has been redesigned as a mixed research-professional Master’s degree course, and renamed Designing training technology. Our objective is to offer in-depth training in designing training activities that implement digital tools. This change also enables the integration of one of the former “Language teaching” specialisation’s course tracks, oriented toward multimedia creation, which is now featured alongside another teaching design course track.

  • Course track 1: Teaching design
  • Course track 2: Multimedia creation

Specialisation: Scientific communication

Divided into two course tracks in order to adapt content to the sector’s new professions:

  • Course track 1: Institutional communication
  • Course track 2: New tools and methods in scientific mediation

Specialisation: Engineering training and skills

The specialisation in Engineering training and skills has been redesigned to integrate a new course track entitled “Teaching in health sciences”, which is offered in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine, as well as a course track entitled “Support toward and in employment”, in order to reinforce the professional integration and support field already opened through the professional Bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Management.

  • Course track 1: Training and organisations
  • Course track 2: Support toward and in employment
  • Course track 3: Teacher training
  • Course track 4: Teaching in health sciences

Specialisation: Research-oriented francophone distance-learning Master’s degree in Education Sciences

The specialisation entitled “Using Information and Communication Technologies in Education and Training” will be replaced by another distance-learning specialisation supported by the AUF (Agence universitaire de la francophonie, or University agency for the French-speaking community) and entitled the Research-oriented francophone distance-learning Master’s degree in Education Sciences.

With this specialisation, the University of Strasbourg joins the consortium composed of the University of Rouen and the University of Lyon 2, which already offer this programme, and will soon be joined by the CNED (National Centre for Distance Learning) with its virtual campus, FORSE (Training and Resources in Education Sciences).

Specialisation: Engineering intervention in the socio-educational environment

The specialisation entitled “Engineering intervention in the socio-educational environment” is divided into two course tracks – one in Mulhouse and one in Strasbourg – to respond to the Master’s-degree-level certification requirement for this profession.

  • Course track 1: Socio-educational supervision and intervention
  • Course track 2: Social practices, remediation and action research

The new course track entitled "Social practices, remediation and action research" will notably be open to candidates who hold a Diploma of Social practice studies (DHEPS), as a crossover opportunity for students with a background in social, socio-educational and medical social fields who wish to enter the 2nd year of a Master’s degree training course.


University Diploma: Analysis of work and activity – Ergology

The “Analysis of work and activity – Ergology” University Diploma lends a new perspective and new tools to the question of skills. In this sense, this University Diploma offers a useful complement to anyone who works in education, mediation, organisation and human resources, communication, development, management, safety, quality control, or the engineering of training and skills.

In 2013, the training course in ergology will take advantage of the University of Strasbourg’s e-space distance learning platform. An online library, available 24/7, provides students with documentation and videoconferences. Three-quarters of classes and group work will also be done online, using a virtual classroom. Nevertheless, to encourage collaboration in student groups, three in-person seminars are held during the training course: at the beginning, middle and end of the study programme. The programme totals 180 hours, beginning at the end of March and ending at the end of January the following year

University Diploma in Cooperation and Development Studies (3-year undergraduate degree)

The University Diploma in Cooperation and Development Studies is for young adults with at least two years of post-secondary studies or significant experience related to the programme objectives. It enables students to receive University Diploma accreditation for an action plan carried out over 9 months within an aid association in the fields of cooperation and international solidarity or humanitarian action.

The University Diploma in Cooperation and Development Studies thus offers a space for training and social experimentation within the framework of a gap year or a plan to change academic orientation or resume one’s studies.

In 2013, in collaboration with the partner association Intercordia, which notably offers project preparation support, students will also have the possibility to receive accreditation for a Civic Service project within the framework of this training programme.

Diploma of Social practice studies (DHEPS) (4-year undergraduate degree)

The Diploma of Social practice studies offers a training programme that is both original and adapted to students who wish to carry out action research on their practices in their social or professional fields of reference, with the aim of making the most of the skills they acquire.

In 2013, several new perspectives are offered:

  • Welcoming new audiences to the University
  • Developing priority subject areas, notably in the fields of adult and specialised education, health, victimology, etc.
  • Reinforcing partnerships with regional professional structures
  • Developing the teaching approach (reinforcing the “social project” aspect, collective interdisciplinary study days)
  • Pursuing studies: access to the “Social practices, remediation and action research” course track within the “Engineering intervention in the socio-educational environment” specialisation of the Master’s degree in Education Sciences.

University Diploma in Health education (3-year undergraduate degree)

This training programme has been designed for individuals who work or volunteer in health education and intervene in fields specific to health promotion (all public health, socio-educational and educational professions; policy officers within community health-specific structures). This professional interdisciplinarity favours health promotion in the actions taken under its initiative.

The programme’s priority objectives are:

  • Reinforcing the professional skills of health educators and health promotion specialists
  • Comparing experiences and practices to the knowledge gathered within educational and medical-social fields
  • Contributing knowledge related to methodology and project management
