The Graduate Program in French Studies offers a dynamic curriculum that focuses on a contextualized understanding of the languages, literatures, and cultures of France, Québec and the Francophone world. Students may specialize in literature or linguistics, or propose a research program combining both fields. Here, coursework broadens your knowledge and helps you to explore possible fields for subsequent investigation, as well as to learn key concepts and theoretical approaches by means of comparative analysis. Graduate seminars are normally conducted in French. Course offerings vary from year to year, as they are related to the active research projects of program faculty. You have the option to pursue a topic in more detail and depth by writing an 80-page MA thesis
