The French Studies program is an integral part of the Modern Languages & Literatures Department. It encompasses study in language, linguistics, literature, and civilization as well as overlapping fields of knowledge such as philosophy, history, and aesthetics.

We offer language courses in areas such as writing, translation and stylistics, linguistics courses in areas such as phonetics, morphology, syntax, lexicology and dialectology, and literature courses examining the major movements, periods and genres in the literatures of France and Canada. All courses encourage students to develop clarity and diversity of thought, intellectual rigour, and method.

Career Possibilities

A command of both of Canada’s official languages is a definite asset in obtaining employment in almost every field. Students who graduate with a degree in French Studies can go on to teach or to become translators or interpreters.

Careers in administration, government, industry, commerce, publishing, and journalism are among those favoured by French Studies graduates. In addition, speaking one or more languages is beneficial for careers in museums, libraries, travel, tourism, and companies having overseas offices.
