Что я буду изучать?

The French Graduate program, with its breadth of topics in literature and linguistics, offers an interdisciplinary curriculum. The linguistics component consists of the study of a variety of linguistic theories and their specific application to the analysis of French. The literature option includes a comprehensive genre- and period-oriented set of courses. Since a major goal of all students enrolled in a French program is mastery of the language, all courses are given in French.

Program Requirements

Students may be required to complete additional courses to remedy deficiencies or to ensure suitable thesis preparation or project research. The following are the minimum requirements.


Students in the MA with thesis option successfully complete a minimum of 30 units consisting of 4 graduate courses totaling 12 units from their chosen concentration, either in linguistics or literature including FREN 803, plus a thesis proposal (FREN 896) and a thesis (FREN 898). Within the 12 units and with their senior supervisor's approval, students may complete up to 9 units of FREN 800 level courses offered concurrently with a 400 level course. Students may complete up to 1 graduate course (3 units) outside the Department of French. Students are required to submit a thesis proposal (3 units) with a grading of satisfactory or unsatisfactory, no later than one term following the completion of course work. The examination of the thesis proposal consists of an oral presentation before the student's supervisory committee. In addition, students must complete a thesis of a minimum of 70 pages to a maximum of 90 pages in linguistics or literature in accordance with the Graduate General Regulations (1.9 -1.11) (15 units). The thesis is defended at an oral examination as described in 1.9 and 1.10 of the Graduate General Regulations.
