L'impact des études supérieures sur les valeurs des étudiants

Abstract : This thesis comes from a simple idea : what one does, what one lives change us. Now, within the collective experiences, one tends to become more and more shared : going for higher studies. It is therefore surprising to note that few studies have examined the impact that majors may have on the judgment of students, whose identity – so much as professional - remains under construction. From a survey inspired by the European Values Survey and the Survey on The Cultural Practices of the French, and conducted with a final sample of students from 11 academic disciplines, our work shows that the controversial idea of a socialization deserves consideration. For if from the first year the disciplines tend to attract populations with already differentiated profiles, they tends at the end to reshape these initial particularisms. Disciplinary contents undoubtedly play a role in this remodeling, through the acquisition or reinforcement of specific skills and dispositions. But concomitantly, the particularization of student profiles over the years appears to be a phenomenon of anticipatory socialization : becoming an advanced student and the appropriation of the future and probable place occupied in the social space go hand in hand.
