Students who hold a Baccalaureate specializing in French and whose course of study corresponds essentially to the courses offered in the Departments of French Studies in Canada can be admitted directly into the program.

Applicants with a Bachelor's degree in a field other than French must take a number of courses as part of a preparatory program. A minimum average of B is required for admission to the master's program.
