French MA Program
Romance Languages Master of Arts-French
The French program offers a Master of Arts degree that requires two years of study beyond the Bachelor of Arts. Students take a variety of courses in French and Francophone Literatures, French Cinema, and culture. Graduate students also may be awarded teaching assistantships to gain experience in the classroom and support their graduate studies.
Joint (Accelerated) B.A./M.A. Program
Selected students can obtain both a BA in French and an MA in Romance Languages--French in 5 years by "double-applying" 9 hours of upper-level course work to both degrees. The 5th year is normally funded; students participate in teaching beginning French and are paid as a Teaching Assistant or Graduate Part-Time Instructor. Some summer school is required. Applications are competitive.
Student Teaching Assistants
The French program is very proud of its graduate students, many of whom are international students with native or near-native fluency, and several of whom are Fulbright fellows. GPTIs receive a tuition waver and stipend in exchange for their assistantship duties, which include advising, tutoring, grading, course preparation, and team teaching with a faculty mentor. They complete 18 hours of graduate-level coursework, including a course in methodology, before becoming instructor of record in Introductory and Intermediate language courses.
