Assessment will take place online through eCampus . A pre-test in the form of a mock exam will take place beforehand.

The exam tab will appear in the left column. It will consist of 10 multiple choice questions (0/+1) and an essay topic. It is possible to save your essay via a text editor or to upload it in PDF format. In case of doubt, it is recommended to send a backup copy to hassan.bousetta@uliege.be before the end of the exam.

For the dissertation, particular attention will be paid to the student's ability to practice epistemological rupture and to extricate him/herself from preconceptions and common sense. The student will have to problematize sociologically the questions at the center of the course from the analysis of a situation in the recent news in connection with migrations, citizenship and intercultural relations.
