Langues Etrangères Appliquées (LEA): Applied Foreign Languages



The Bachelor’s Degree in Foreign Languages Applied to trade and business is part of the Department of Languages & Communication. The “LEA” curriculum is characterized by its multidisciplinary nature which brings together academic subjects (languages, society & politics, and economics) and vocational subjects.

It is a 3-year semi-vocational degree that enables students to prepare for a specialized Master’s degree. “LEA” graduates are recognized in the labor market, where they are much appreciated by companies for their knowledge in foreign languages and cultures, but also for their solid groundings in computing, economics and management, as well as their open-mindedness and adaptability.

“LEA” is not considered as a literary career: teaching is based on foreign languages for two thirds and applied business-based courses for one third. Amongst the different courses, you will find:


•    Two foreign languages at the same level: English, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian (for Russian it is possible to be a beginner).
The courses are based on translation, writing of economic and trade documents, as well as written and oral expression & comprehension. Some classes are devoted to civilization and economy of the countries you’re studying the language.

•    Applied business courses and vocational subjects needed to enter professional life such as computing, word-processing, general / business / duties / employment law. The training also includes marketing, general economics and business, communication, etc.

The Department of Languages and Communication attaches great importance to international mobility. They expanded their network by signing partnerships with foreign universities in order to enable LEA students to study in a partner university for one semester or an academic year (with the Erasmus program). Students can also find an internship thanks to the partnerships the Department of Languages and Communication has developed with foreign companies over the years. These exchanges enable students to develop aptitudes such as mobility and adaptation, qualities appreciated by employers.

As for the different Master's Degrees, they offer a specialization in different areas of studies such as trade, communication and the media, with specific skills in addition to foreign languages.

After graduating from a “LEA” degree, different Masters are available:

•    “LEACA” Masters:  Masters in Foreign Languages Applied to trade and business (Master en Langues Etrangères Appliquées au Commerce et aux Affaires).
•    “LAMME” Masters: Masters in Languages and European Media markets (Master Langues et Marché des Médias Européens).
•    “MASCI” Masters: Masters in International Communication Strategies (Master Stratégies de Communication Internationale).


Langues, Littérature et Civilisation Etrangère (LLCE) => Languages, Literature, and Foreign civilization



Choosing “LLCE” is choosing a demanding literary career that requires a high level of general knowledge. This career, aimed at students who already have a solid knowledge of the language of specialization, offers courses of grammar, linguistics, oral & written expression, translation, literature, civilization and the study of audio & audiovisual supports.

The main objective of this Bachelor’s degree is to specialize in one foreign language (English, German, Italian or Spanish) by studying its linguistic specificities, its culture and the literature of the countries in which the language is spoken.

After obtaining a “LLCE” degree, students can start a Masters of “Professions of foreign languages and cultures” (Métier des Langues et Cultures Etrangères) which offers, for each language, different areas of specialization:

•    “Research and international strategic intelligence” (Recherche et veille international)
•    “Teaching and foreign cultures” (Enseignement et Cultures Etrangères), which prepares for the examination of teaching in secondary schools & high schools.
•    “E-languages” (e-langues), which will be introduced in 2012.
