The second cycle also offers other types of training such as vocational
MAs or research MAs. Based on the research carried out by these laboratories,
the school has set research-oriented relations with them to offer doctoral training
(research and vocational MAs).
At the ensa-v, three specialized MAs are offered in partnership with the university.
Both the MAs "Historical gardens, heritage and landscapes"
and "Cultural and Social history of architecture" can be carried
out jointly with their senior year of their MA in architecture.
Vocational MA: "Historical gardens,
heritage and landscapes"
works in partnership with the university of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne
MA in architecture or M1, students specialized in landscapes, civil and rural
engineering (agronomist, forest, horticultural engineers), history, history
of art, geography, urbanism, philosophy (after student file examination and
interview) or through the 'accreditation for work experience' (VAE) process.
One year or 3 semesters in the case of a joint MA in Architecture.
Gardens and cultural landscapes constitute a heritage of which the specificity
is to implement living materials, natural processes and changing human practices
in ever complexified territorial situations. The MA "Historical gardens,
heritage and landscapes" aims to train actors capable of intervening according
to a dynamic, critical and creative perspective on sites that require protection,
restructuring and reinvention.
Pluridisciplinarity and the support of renowned experts offers a curriculum
based on the alternation between theoretical knowledge (courses and seminars),
on-site experimentation (study trip, visits and tutorials) and experiencing
teamwork through contact with professionals.
The MA enables students to apply to jobs offered by the State, local government
organizations, architecture agencies, landscape architect agencies, engineering
agencies. The MA provides students with tools necessary to set up their own
private companies or to go on to do research.
