About

The Master of Arts (MA) in French and Francophone Studies offered by the University of Massachusetts Amherst is a two-year, 30-credit program that serves students who seek to undertake more advanced work in a humanistic discipline and gain a more thorough knowledge of the broad French intellectual tradition.

Overview

The Master of Arts (MA) in French and Francophone Studies offered by the University of Massachusetts Amherst is designed to offer a rigorous educational experience not only to students intending to pursue a PhD program, but also to those interested in careers in fields in which expertise in French is directly relevant or a valuable complement: government and public service, communications, research, public health, the hospitality industry, fashion, business and international relations, translation and interpretation, as well as high-school and community-college teaching. The program includes both thesis and non-thesis options.

Study Abroad

The French and Francophone Studies program has maintained a graduate student exchange program with the Université de Toulouse since the early 1980s. Each year, we send one of our MA or MAT students, chosen on a competitive basis, to teach English and take courses in Toulouse, and one student from the graduate program in English in Toulouse comes to study and teach French in Amherst.
