The Département d’études françaises et québécoises puts the emphasis on the acquisition, the quality, and the improvement of the French language at all levels, and intends to serve beginner, intermediate, and advanced students as well as native speakers. The program is composed of five levels, each of which contains a minimum of two grammar and writing courses and one course focusing on aural comprehension and expression. This provides the students with a coherent and logical learning process by the end of which they can understand, read, speak, and write French correctly. The Department also offers a number of inter and multidisciplinary courses designed for both native and advanced non-native speakers. These courses allow students to progressively master the French grammar and language, and to become acquainted with a variety of cultural movements that are significant to the francophone world. Through the study of the works of meaningful francophone artists, students will better understand and appreciate the history of the francophonie and its evolution.

Le Département d’études françaises et québécoises concentre ses efforts sur l’apprentissage, l’amélioration et la qualité de la langue française pour les étudiant.e.s. de niveaux débutant, intermédiare et avancé ainsi que pour les francophones. Chacun des cinq niveaux proposés comprend un minimum de deux cours axés sur la grammaire et la rédaction, et un sur l’expression et la compréhension orale, l’ensemble assurant aux étudiant.e.s une progression linguistique logique et cohérente au terme de laquelle ils pourront comprendre, parler, lire et écrire le français correctement et avec aisance. Le département offre également une série de cours inter et multidisciplinaires, destinés aux étudiant.e.s francophones ou allophones avancés, qui permet de mieux maîtriser la langue française, d’acquérir de solides connaissances des divers mouvements culturels ayant marqué la francophonie, et de comprendre et de mieux apprécier les créations artistiques fondatrices de son histoire et de son évolution.
