The Department of French Studies offers a wide variety of programs for students interested in learning the French language, teaching, or pursuing a bilingual career. French majors have the choice of General or Honours French programs, which can be combined with Specializations and other minors from across the university. Our department also offers its own Minors and Diplomas for students majoring in other disciplines who are looking to improve their language skills and enrich their cultural knowledge.

Please consult the Digital Tracking Checklist for French Honours and specializations.
