The Master of Arts (MA) in French at Florida Atlantic University features two separate tracks, thesis and non-thesis. In both tracks, students take three core courses: an introduction to the study of literature at the graduate level, a course in critical theory, and a linguistics course on the history and dialectology of the French language. These core courses are followed by a series of graduate seminars chosen from among available graduate electives.
The range of graduate electives extends from medieval topics (the medieval author) to contemporary ones (current translation theory), and from courses on specific authors (such as Proust) to courses covering wider aspects of the French tradition (such as the epistolary novel in the eighteenth century).
- The Master of Arts in French with thesis requires a minimum of 30 credits, including 6 credits for thesis work. In the last semester of study, students complete an oral exam based on the French comprehensive reading list.
- The Master of Arts in French without thesis requires a minimum of 36 credits. In the last semester of study, students complete a comprehensive written and oral examination based in part on the French comprehensive reading list.
