French Language & Literature: MA
from the Bulletin
The MA in French Language and Literature seeks to have each student develop an advanced knowledge of French and Francophone literature, its history, and major works, and a sound knowledge of the traditions, aims, and methods of scholarly research in the field. While many MA graduates go on to doctoral study in literature, others pursue careers in education or in fields where command of French offers professional value, such international law, public health, development, and business. Advanced proficiency in French is a prerequisite for admission to the program.
