Cultural Heritage

The Course will give you knowledge and understanding of archeology, library science and history of art which provide employment as archaeologists, archivists, librarians, art historians in private and public institutions (museums, libraries, archives, research centers, foundations, publishing businesses, restoration centers, etc.). An important part of the Course also involves studying new technologies. There are four curricula: Archeology, Archiving-books, History of Art and Italian-French Studies (with Université Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand).
You can then find employment in archeology or processing archaeological data, archiving and libraries or the history of art. Other career prospects can be found in study groups, research units, and other initiatives aimed at the preservation of the historical-archaeological heritage, or in activities to promote research in archeology, archiving and library studies or history of art in education, publishing and tourism.
