About the Program
The graduate program provides students with a strong base of knowledge in French and Francophone Studies, encompassing the areas of literature, culture, film, and linguistics. Students are encouraged to develop a firm foundation in both historical and critical studies, with a particular emphasis on interdisciplinary research. Faculty interests such as art history, comparative literature, critical theory, cultural linguistics, discourse analysis, film studies, philosophy, visual studies, and women’s studies ensure that students are exposed to a broad array of interdisciplinary approaches. In addition to the formal training in their specific area of specialization, students also receive training in foreign language pedagogy and are closely supervised as they teach the lower-division language courses.
