The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures is pleased to invite applications to its Master's Program in French and Francophone Graduate Studies. This program provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of French and Francophone cultures with a wide range of courses covering the entire spectrum of literary history combined with allied courses in art history, cultural studies, comparative literature, film, literary theory, history, and philosophy. Students are encouraged to adapt the program to their individual needs and interests in close collaboration with the faculty. In fact, Notre Dame is especially suited to those students desiring close contact with scholars in the field, whether for guidance or for more focused study.
Founded in 1842 by a French missionary of the order “Congrégation de Sainte Croix,” based in Le Mans, France, the University of Notre Dame has a firm and deep commitment to the study of France, French literature, and the Francophone world at the graduate level. Our distinguished faculty in the Program of French and Francophone Studies represent the array of disciplines from the medieval through the modern periods and include specialists in North African, sub-Saharan, and Caribbean Francophone literatures.

Notre Dame stipends are competitive with those of other universities, and many students find the stipends even more attractive when the cost of living here is considered. Housing and other living costs in the South Bend area are well below the average for urban areas throughout the country.
