These programs are designed for students who wish to specialize in French as a Second Language or Études françaises et québécoises. Often, but not necessarily, students in these programs are planning to pursue their studies at the Master’s level. Each is composed of 60 credits (20 courses) with the combined designations FRE and FRA for Honours in French as a Second Language, and FRA only for an Honours in Études françaises et québécoises. Up to 9 credits (3 courses) in appropriate fields, previously approved by the Department, could be counted as cognates. Students must maintain an average of at least 70%, calculated on the best 60 credits in the Honours discipline (including cognates), in order to graduate with an Honours degree in any Division of Humanities.
