Description: UFV’s Bachelor of Arts with a major, minor, or extended minor in French teaches you to converse fluently and write powerfully in French. Small class sizes, native-speaking professors, and opportunities to work or study across Canada or abroad help you master the language fully, while also exposing you to the francophone world and its varied cultures. UFV’s French program focuses on developing communication in areas of reading, writing, speaking, listening and interacting.

UFV’s Bachelor of Arts with a major in French prepares you to speak fluently in French, advancing your level of French writing, reading, and listening skills. In your first two years, you study intermediate French topics in composition, language and culture, oral communication, and media. In your third and four years, you delve deeper into the topics of French composition, oral communication, translation, linguistics, and literature. An optional immersion course at the fourth-year level is offered in conjunction with a student exchange program between UFV’s French program and Université Laval. There are other opportunities to work or study in Canada and internationally.
