Careers in Heritage Sciences (MSP)

Created in 2004, the Master in Written Heritage and Digital Publishing (MSP-PEEN) has for fifteen years been preparing its students for those professions which draw on the kinds of knowledge associated with the written heritage and the digital technologies relating to publishing. In order to enter into the CESR’s new Master “Professions in Heritage Sciences”, the Master MSP-PEEN is taking on a new look and will return at the beginning of the university year 2019-2020 in a reconceived version now organised over two years.
