French at UVic
The Department of French at UVic grants both undergraduate degrees (B.A. and B.A. with Honours) and a graduate degree (M.A. in Literature, Language and Culture), giving students the flexibility to create a program tailored to their specific interests.
We have a strong commitment to the fostering of academic learning and to serving both the internal and external University communities. Thanks to the diversity of our members, we are committed to excellence in teaching and learning and are constantly seeking new ways to make learning a rewarding and memorable experience. Some of our programs are unique, such as the Combined Major in English and French (Canadian Literature).
We are proud of our students' high level of written and spoken French and encourage a total immersion environment from our departmental office operations to the classroom or language laboratory. In order to encourage fluency, we also support students' learning in gaining experience outside of the UVic community.
Research strengths in the Department are varied including digital humanities, and we strive to help students ground their work in both theoretical and applied research.
Whatever your interests may be, please do not hesitate to come and talk to us.
