Program Leading to the Master of Arts Degree in French

The Master of Arts degree in French Studies is designed to provide essential knowledge in three sub-fields: literature and the arts, language and linguistics, and society and culture. Specific requirements are:
  1. French core courses (9 credits): Fre 505, Fre 510, and Fre 512.

  2. Supporting courses (21 credits) Up to 6 credits may be taken, with approval of the Director of Graduate Studies, outside the Department.

  3. Satisfactory completion of a Major Field Examination in French.

  4. Foreign language requirement. Although competence in a second appropriate foreign language is not required for the master's degree, it is highly recommended for students planning further graduate study.

Students whose language proficiency in French is inadequate may be required to take one or two advanced language courses over and above the usual 30-credit program.
