This is where you can find information that may be useful when you have any questions about the job market and how you can get a job in your area of education. The information is arranged according to where you are in the process that takes you from the start to the end of your studies.

I want to study humanities – what will I be?

Many students wonder where their studies will take them. Explaining what "you will be" to parents, relatives and friends can be difficult. It is perhaps easier to say you are studying for a specific profession, but it is perfectly possible to say that you are studying to be a humanist!

I’m soon graduating

Information about graduating and applying for jobs or further studies. Taking stock of your capabilities. Practical information about writing CVs and cover letters, attending job interviews, etc.

Work areas

Our former students are working as editors, researchers, translators, teachers, priests, project managers, culture critics, museum managers, archaeologists, communications officers... And much else!
