|Description:||Mount Allison offers an extensive French Studies program, within the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, with a variety of language, literature and culture courses which increase the students’ awareness of the French and French-Canadian identities while developing their ability to function in the second language. To this end, all language and literature courses are taught in French.
The courses at the first and second year levels provide the opportunity to establish a sound foundation in oral and written French. The study of grammar at these levels is reinforced by practice in the language laboratory or tutorial groups. Several of the courses at the 3000 and 4000 levels are specifically intended to refine the students’ command of spoken and written French, while the other courses deal with the various areas of French and French-Canadian literatures and cultures as well as the theories of literary criticism. A series of prizes are awarded each year to students who distinguish themselves in French Studies.
