|Field of Study:||French Language and Literature, General
|Description:||Mastery of French is an undeniable asset for any career in Canada. In the Department of French, not only can you work toward an advanced level of spoken and written proficiency in the language, but you can also study literature (from all regions of the French-speaking world), literary theory, culture and civilization, linguistics, and translation.
Understanding literature involves a highly specialized form of reading which not only develops knowledge of people and cultures outside of our own personal experience, but also the skills and techniques of problem-solving, inferential and conceptual thinking, critical analysis, synthesis and logic. Good readers are not only great writers but excellent thinkers as well. The research and communication skills that are required of the student of literature translate naturally into both personal and professional life.
Linguistics, the scientific study of the language, enhances your academic program with critical and analytical skills while contributing to your better understanding of human language (French, English and others), not simply from a grammatical or spoken perspective but also from a scientific approach.
