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.
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.
