The Department of Foreign Languages at Savitribai Phule Pune University offers a M.A. in French. We have a highly qualified teaching faculty for higher courses as well as trained teachers working as contributory or visiting faculty. A high demand for foreign language professionals ensures job placements for most of our students.


French is spoken in more than 50 countries across the world and thus offers numerous career opportunities in different fields around the globe. It was first introduced in Pune in Wadia College in the year 1932 and got introduced in the Savitribai Phule Pune University curriculum with the establishment of the Department of Foreign Languages in 1954.

The French embassy offers continuous support and at the moment we have a native teacher who teaches and also helps in organizing extra-curricular activities. The embassy offers the possibility of teaching English in French schools to all students with a Masters level qualification in the language.

In the past we have had a 7 year collaboration with the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Many students and teachers have benefited through this collaboration through which the Masters students who were selected to go on a scholarship also got a transfer of credits. A text book for teaching French was published by us under the aegis of this program.

Since 2013, we have been collaborating with CEGEP de Sherbrooke in Quebec. Many professors from this university have been coming as guest lecturers, as well as our professors have been going to conduct lectures in CEGEP de Sherbrooke.
