Faculty of Learning Sciences, Psychoanalysis and French as a Foreign Language (UFR sciences de l’éducation, psychanalyse et français langue étrangère - SEPF)
The Faculty of Learning Sciences, Psychoanalysis and French as a Foreign Language or UFR SEPF brings together three departments: Learning Sciences, Psychoanalysis, and Communication - French as a Foreign Language. Each department has its own institutional identity. The first two offer direct degrees in their own right and are supported by three established research teams. The third is a university-wide department designed to welcome international students learning French.
The Faculty offers an original higher education pathway, and works very closely with other departments and universities.
- Its research laboratories are shared with other universities (University of Paris-Est Créteil, University Sorbonne Paris Nord (Paris 13), Pau, etc.).
- Faculty members are fully involved in the running of the university (central councils and commissions, Bureau de l’Université, etc.).
The Faculty works very closely with other faculties, doctoral schools, and institutes:
- one department serves the entire University (Com - FLE),
- one interdisciplinary degree is offered in partnership with the UFR eriTES,
- it offers a complete course (licence/bachelor’s, master’s) suitable for distance learning provided by the Distance Learning Institute (IED), lifelong learning degrees in close cooperation with the Validation of Acquired Experience (VAE) system,
- strong commitment to preparing students for national competitive examinations through the University Office for Initial and Continuing Education (SUFICE),
- its laboratories are used by two doctoral schools for teaching and research.
The Faculty strives to be an innovative hub for various technological experiments accessible by students in line with the University’s policy. It offers courses and degrees with strong identities, some of which are the only one of their kind in France.
