French degree offered by the University of Arizona prepares students for a variety of public and private careers, including academic positions, and provides them a foundation to continue their education at the doctoral level. Our graduates have gone on to teach at public and private high schools and in community colleges and universities; others are pursuing careers in business and government agencies.

Working together with the Director of Graduate Studies, their Faculty Mentors, and other professors, students have the flexibility to construct a Plan of Study that suits their individual needs and interests.

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

  • French Literature and Culture: Provides students a comprehensive overview of French literature and culture and prepares them to pursue work at the Ph.D. level in French.
  • Teaching French as a Foreign Language: Prepares students for a career in teaching, or for continued studies at the doctoral level in interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs, such as the UA’s Ph.D. in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching.
  • Francophone Studies: Offers three areas of emphasis (Near Eastern, African, or Caribbean), as well as the opportunity to take classes in a related discipline, such as Near Eastern Studies, Anthropology, Gender and Women’s Studies, History, or Political Science.
  • Secondary Teaching Certification: Prepares students for teaching careers in high schools, includes the certification required by secondary schools.
  • Accelerated Master’s Program: Offers highly qualified undergraduates at the UA the option of beginning coursework toward the M.A. during their last year of undergraduate studies, and completing the Master of Arts in their fifth year at the University.

“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?”​
