About this Degree
The Master of Arts in French Language and Literature program at the University of Toronto is both a self-contained program and the first stage towards doctoral studies. It has two objectives:
to allow the student to develop a thorough knowledge of the discipline through a program of coursework in French linguistics and
to develop an aptitude for research.
It is a 12-month program for full-time students; the program is available on a part-time basis.
At the beginning of their course of study, students meet individually with the Associate Chair, Graduate in order to determine course selection with a view to ensuring that the student has a well-rounded program and, considered in conjunction with the undergraduate degree, has a broad knowledge of the discipline.
