M.A. in French and Francophone Studies
Graduate students in French and Francophone Studies are members of a dynamic intellectual environment. In addition to their coursework in French, M.A. candidates pursue their intellectual interests in adjacent fields such as philosophy, history, women's studies, film studies, linguistics, English and art history.
Along with its sister programs, the Division of French and Italian Studies sponsors the annual KFLC: The Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Conference, which, every April, brings to campus some 800 nationally- and internationally-recognized scholars to present and discuss their current research. Our graduate students participate in the KFLC by organizing panels featuring graduate students from all over North America.
Graduate students with a particular interest in multidisciplinary training are encouraged to pursue a graduate certificate through the Committee on Social Theory, one of the University's most vibrant centers of innovative research and collaboration across the social sciences and the humanities.
