Master in Labour Sciences [60.0] - TRAV2M1
The Master in Labour Sciences (60 credit Master) is designed to give those who successfully complete it a general training, concentrated in 60 credits, in the human and social problems in the world of work. This involves developing students’ abilities to tackle, in a multidisciplinary way, issues relating to employment and work, social policies and professional relationships (e.g. training, employment and unemployment, social security and collective labour relations).
The Work and Society option is really designed for those already working, who wish to acquire a short general professional qualification in labour sciences. It builds on students’ previous training or professional experiences to enable them to be better able to tackle labour issues, both in theory and methodology.
As regards the European Master in Labour Sciences option, priority is given to those who have already completed a Masters and who wish to build on what they have already learnt with a multidisciplinary and European training programme over one year. This includes a semester abroad at one of the European partner universities which offer a joint programme.
The programme comprises 60 credits, spread between the core subjects (35 credits) which includes the rudiments of each discipline and the dissertation, together with the option (25 credits) :
In theory, it is possible to move up from the 60 credit Master to the 120 credit Master providing all the core subjects from the 120 credit Master are added to the programme (including a new dissertation of 28 credits and the dissertation seminar) together with two courses from the research focus of the 120 credit Master which have not already been taken for the 60 credit programme. 75 additional credits are necessary.
In practice, however, this really does not represent the best way of moving up and will also be very difficult to achieve in terms of both the organization of each semester and of timetabling. For these reasons, students are strongly discouraged from moving up in this way.
