What you will study
The French Studies MA program from New York University requires the successful completion of eight courses, including at least seven of them at the IFS, and a comprehensive M.A. exam. A normal full-time course load is three courses per semester. Full-time students can complete the degree in one calendar year by taking the IFS summer courses offered at NYU in Paris, and sitting for the M.A.
Comprehensive Examination in Paris. The summer term typically runs from early June through mid- July. Those who do not participate in the summer program complete their M.A. requirements in three semesters of study at NYU. Part-time students normally take two years to meet the course requirements.
The course work is done in small seminars taught by leading scholars from the U.S. and the French-speaking world. NYU’s faculty includes experts on France and Europe, Africa and the Maghreb, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and South-East Asia. Each year, we also welcome four visiting professors from France. Half of the course offering is in French, and students perfect their oral and written command of the language and put it to analytical use. Our French Language Lab provides linguistic support as needed.
