This Master's degree Year 2 trains students for careers in information. It offers, on the one hand, common courses devoted to the transversal problems of production and social exchanges of information in a multidisciplinary perspective and, on the other hand, more specialised and professionalising courses corresponding to two professional sectors and two distinct classes of students.
Consulting, Influential Communication and Public Relations (PR)
Mainly targets communication and strategic support for corporate public affairs departments.
The Journalism and International Issues Professions (JIIP)
Provides a mastery of editorial issues within multimedia editorial offices and in an international context, with a focus on investigation and long-form formats (e.g. mooks, news documentaries).
For which students? For which careers?
The training includes lectures and theoretical courses as well as practical work. It requires a very good general culture and a good command of written and oral expression. A good level of English is also necessary for careers in which the international dimension is central. Moreover, the professional opportunities associated with the various courses require a high degree of autonomy on the part of the students recruited and an ability to project themselves into complex professional environments. The positions targeted by the different tracks are primarily those of Project Manager (public and private executive offices); Communication Director (political, institutional, event-based, crisis and web communication); Consultant and research officer (strategy, communication, consultation, media relations); Public Affairs and Relations Officer; Editorial Director, multi-media editor (press, radio, TV, Web), specialized journalist (political, institutional, international).

- implement techniques and tools for producing information and master the main genres of journalism
- think and advise media companies in their positioning strategies
