French is one of Canada’s two official languages and is spoken in numerous countries around the world (including France, Belgium, Switzerland, Haiti and various African countries). It is used by many international institutions, from the United Nations to the European Union and the Organization of American States.
The French program at Acadia University offers you a broad range of courses covering language, culture, and translation, as well as the literatures of France, Quebec, Acadie, French-speaking Africa, and the Caribbean.
A degree in French opens a wealth of career options, both at home and abroad. The average salary for employees who speak both French and English is on average 28 per cent higher than the salary of employees who only speak English.
