La professionnalisation des diplômes universitaires : la gouvernance des formations en question

Abstract : This thesis will try to highlight the building, the stakes and effects generated by the introduction of professionally-oriented diplomas at the University. The innovative aspect of this work lays on the attempt to link two key elements taken out from the recent reforms undertaken into the French university system : on the one hand, the professionalisation of degrees and, on the other hand, the progressive development of debates and concrete measures about governance, specific to the development and management of the university training offer. It will thus be question of the general expansion of university vocational trainings, seen as a vector promoting the setting-up of a new mode of ?governance of trainings?. This latter will deal with the whole set of modalities at institutional, organisational and operational levels, through which the university trainings are worked out, implemented, managed and financed, within the framework of consultation processes or partnerships, between the different actors involved. It will refer to the elaboration and regulation of degree offer based on multi-party (the State, the institution and its constituent parts, professional actors, local authorities, etc.) and multi-level (European, national and local) consultation processes. In this context, several thematics will be dealt with : the policy construction of the governance and the professionalisation of university trainings (at national and European levels), the different factors having influenced the conceptions and actual forms of professionally-oriented trainings, the creation and evolution of the institutional and organisational scheduling in which the professionalisation development is operated, and then, the building process of university vocational training degrees. This last line of enquiry will pay particular attention to the manifold forms of partnerships, as well as representations, practices, and the role played by the diverse categories of actors involved in the process of elaboration and capacitation of diplomas. The theoretical and disciplinary framework of this thesis is mainly based on general sociology, sociology of organisations, labour sociology, and last but not least that of education sciences.
