The French – Accelerated Master’s Program is offered by University of Arizona.

The Plan of Study may include, but is not limited to, one of the following emphases:

  • French Literature and Culture
  • Teaching French as a Foreign Language
  • Francophone Studies. Students normally proceed through the M.A. program in four semesters.

Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GATships) are typically available although they are contingent on budget, academic records (for incoming students), and reports of satisfactory progress (for continuing students). We also offer a one-year exchange assistantship with the University of Paris VII (Denis Diderot) and a one-semester exchange with the University of Paris IV (Sorbonne).

Educational Opportunity

The graduate program offers courses on French and Francophone literatures and cultures in all major areas of the French tradition as well as literature in French from the Maghreb, Lebanon, West and Central Africa and the Caribbean.

The department’s courses on French and Francophone literatures and culture deal with current debates on topics that include identity, canon formation, the discipline and its history, and Francophonie, while presenting the classics in their historical and cultural contexts. The faculty employs a range of methods drawing on feminism, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, history and postcolonial theory among others. Likewise, students are encouraged to pursue interdisciplinary approaches and often enroll in courses in related fields such as Women’s studies, English and Anthropology to name just a few of the options. Faculty in the department also offer graduate courses on second language acquisition, pedagogy and linguistics and contribute to the M.A. program in French and to the interdisciplinary doctoral program in Second-Language Acquisition and Teaching.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
