Objectives

The aim of the Bachelor of Arts is to acquire an in-depth general literary and artistic culture and to develop analytical and expressive skills, both written and oral. This course includes a dual pathway (Modern Literature and LCR-FLE), which prepares students for teaching jobs as well as other career prospects. The Bachelor of Arts in Literature aims to provide students with a general literary, artistic and linguistic culture (languages of the Americas). It will provide a solid foundation for the pursuit of studies in literature, journalism or culture-related careers. It already prepares students for competitive examinations by enhancing their knowledge and helping them to master the techniques of writing and speaking in the humanities. The course also promotes a better understanding of the linguistic and cultural realities of French Guiana and highlights  better career guidance by encouraging the broadening of career prospects within the framework of relations established with the countries of the Americas and Europe.
