In Anthropology, they examine patterns of social interaction, interrogate how social identities bind groups together, and understand how conflict arises and resolutions are found across the world’s cultures.

In French, they analyse Francophone cultures (literature, cinema, linguistics, art, history) in the broadest sense. Students often spend their year abroad in a francophone country such as Martinique or Réunion, where they can complete anthropological fieldwork for their final-year project.
