Diplomas in French language

The French Department offers two diplomas (formerly known as certificates):

  • French Language I; and
  • French Language II.

Students must successfully complete 2.5 academic course units (5 term courses) with a cumulative average of 70% as follows:

French Language  I            FR 151, 152, 192A, 192B
and one other course taught in French above the FR 151 level.
French Language II FR 192A, 192B, 251, 252
and one other course taught in French above the FR 152 level.

The following do not count for the Diplomas in French language: FR 291, and 292.

Students who have completed these courses may apply in writing to the Chair of the Department of French Studies for the appropriate diploma (or certificate prior to September 2019). Diplomas will appear on the official transcript and students will receive a paper diploma at graduation. Certificates are issued by the department and do not appear on the official transcript.

Please note that diplomas 1 and 2 are mutually exclusive. Only one diploma can be granted. Diplomas will not be awarded to students who are completing, or have completed, a French Major or Minor.
