Description

This course provides students with the opportunity to complete a major in French studies while studying their primary undergraduate degree. Students completing the major on campus complete six core units in French studies, studying both language (beginning at various proficiency levels ranging from beginners to advanced levels) and French culture and society. They undertake two elective units that further explore French society and culture in the areas of literature, social and cultural studies, film, translation and French for business. Up to four study abroad units for students of all levels are available to be taken at second or third year in lieu of on-campus units.

Objectives

Students will gain competence in their chosen language to a level equivalent to an undergraduate major, (beginners to advanced, depending on commencement level). They will also gain an understanding of social and cultural aspects of the countries from which the language comes.

  • 18 points of second-year level studies (normally three units) and 18 points of third-year level studies (normally three units).
