About

The Department of French and Italian at University of Kansas offers a comprehensive graduate program (M.A. and Ph.D.) in French and Francophone language, literature, and culture. Our faculty is dynamic, professionally active, and committed to excellence in scholarship and teaching. 

Overview

Although the French major emphasis of teaching and research is French and Francophone literature, the department also offers courses in literary theory, cultural studies, and film. The department offers a balanced emphasis on all periods from medieval through twentieth and twenty-first centuries. 

Learning outcomes

Our students represent a diverse group, and we encourage equally applicants from traditional and nontraditional backgrounds.  Excellent facilities, strong library holdings, and a faculty dedicated to both teaching and research assure students of a challenging and professional graduate preparation.

Work toward the M.A. degree at University of Kansas consists of a traditional curriculum providing important foundational knowledge. The M.A. in French is awarded upon the completion of 30 credit hours of course work (which includes either a thesis or two seminars) and oral and written examinations covering all areas of French literature. Students must demonstrate a reading knowledge of a second foreign language. 

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Structure of Modern French
  • Methods in French Language Instruction
