The Department offers language instruction from beginner to advanced and a wide range of literature courses. Covering the areas of Francophonie, Quebec and Canadian studies, linguistics, civilisation and culture from the Middle-Ages to the present, it also offers courses in film and media, business French and translation. Our undergraduate program's strength stems from having core components that allow for flexibility of choice. Undergraduates are encouraged to spend their third year of study at a francophone university, for which they receive 3 to 4 Queen's credits. Most of our students are also given the opportunity to participate in summer immersion programs.
