Psychology master's degree, "Cognitive psychology" option (in collaboration with the University of Burgundy)
National level 1 diploma (third university cycle).
The title of psychologist (law 85-772, decree 90-225) is given to those having done a bachelor's degree course, a master's degree (or first year of a master's), and a psychology DESS (or second year of a master's degree).
The goal of the course is to introduce students to thought and behavioural processes, situational evaluation, and the use of learning tools in professional training. They can be training counsellors, creators of educational resources, teachers, educational coordinators, heads of courses in training institutes, educational institutions and private companies.
The course is organised by both the University of Burgundy's psychology department and AgroSup Dijon's department of training sciences and communications / public relations.
It is under the direct supervision of the University of Burgundy's Learning and Development Research Lab (LEAD, CNRS), and AgroSup Dijon's "Professional development and training" internal unit (DPF, Développement Professionnelle et Formation).

The intern looks for their internship with faculty members. Group tutoring followed by individual tutoring is available during the writing of the thesis. A preliminary jury approves the project halfway through.
The course includes both continuing education and core cycle students in equal parts.
