The French department at McMaster University offers a master's and doctoral program articulated around the theme “Francophonie and diversity.”
Beyond geographic and cultural diversity, other forms are envisaged, such as gender, sexual diversity, racial diversity, generation differences and physical abilities. The diversity also resides in the interdisciplinary perspective that the department adopts both in terms of teaching and research.
