Learning Outcomes of UE

The course aims at giving to the students a panoramic vision of the wide epistemological span which characterizes communication and  language.
It aims in:

Give a basic framework, usefull  just as much to the future specialists of language and comunication (lspeech therapists, psychologists of the language) than to the non-specialists, called to know it within the framework of their profession

present the basic notions susceptible to be useful for them if their studies, their scientific works or their professional practice if they bring them to deal with questions in touch with language and/or communication.

It looks, accordingly, in

- Giving a "basic general knowledge" in the domain,
- Allowing the later autonomous access to the diverse domains of language and communication,
- insuring the reliance between the sciences of language and the domain of professional specialization (in the world of the work or in the research) where the student will be called to exercise, once obtained his diploma,
- Preparing for the other teachings of the Faculty concerning, directly or indirectly, the language and the communication
