About

The MA in French at Florida Atlantic University provide advanced study of French language, literature, and culture. The MA focuses on literary analysis and critical theory;

Overview

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. 

Learning outcomes

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).
