About

Working together with their Faculty Advisor, the Director of Graduate Studies, and other faculty members, MA students at The University of Arizona have the flexibility to construct a Plan of Study that suits their own particular needs and interests. The French - Accelerated Master's Program is offered by The University of Arizona. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Plan of Study may include, but is not limited to, one of the following emphases: 

  • French Literature and Culture
  • Teaching French as a Foreign Language
  • Francophone Studies. Students normally proceed through the M.A. program in four semesters.

Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GATships) are typically available although they are contingent on budget, academic records (for incoming students), and reports of satisfactory progress (for continuing students). We also offer a one-year exchange assistantship with the University of Paris VII (Denis Diderot) and a one-semester exchange with the University of Paris IV (Sorbonne).

Educational Opportunity 

The French - Accelerated Master's Program from The University of Arizona  offers courses on French and Francophone literatures and cultures in all major areas of the French tradition as well as literature in French from the Maghreb, Lebanon, West and Central Africa and the Caribbean. 

The department's courses on French and Francophone literatures and culture deal with current debates on topics that include identity, canon formation, the discipline and its history, and Francophonie, while presenting the classics in their historical and cultural contexts. The faculty employs a range of methods drawing on feminism, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, history and postcolonial theory among others. Likewise, students are encouraged to pursue interdisciplinary approaches and often enroll in courses in related fields such as Women's studies, English and Anthropology to name just a few of the options. Faculty in the department also offer graduate courses on second language acquisition, pedagogy and linguistics and contribute to the M.A. program in French and to the interdisciplinary doctoral program in Second-Language Acquisition and Teaching.
