|French is the first language of about a quarter of Canada’s population. While the majority of these francophones live in Québec, substantial French-speaking minorities can be found in other provinces, such as New Brunswick (a third of the population) and Ontario (half a million Franco-Ontarians). Given this demographic situation, proficiency in Canada’s two official languages, French and English, is an undeniable asset in today’s job market.
University students today know that the world awaiting them after graduation is much different from the world of their parents’ generation. Globalization, downsizing and rapid technological change have radically altered the career landscape. Faced with these challenges, students are perhaps more concerned now than ever about making the right choices in their education. One of these choices is French at the university level. If you are looking for an exciting, varied and challenging programme allowing you to combine literature with language, consider a programme in French. If your main interests lie elsewhere, you can easily add French as a valuable component to your degree.
