French Studies provides a diverse curriculum encompassing study in language, linguistics, and literature.

We offer language courses in areas such as writing, translation and stylistics, linguistics courses in areas such as phonetics, morphology, syntax and lexicology, and literature courses examining the major movements, periods and genres in the literatures of France, Canada and the Francophone world.

All courses encourage students to develop clarity and diversity of thought, intellectual rigour, and method. 

This  French Studies program at University of Winnipeg leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree (3-year, 4-year, or Honours) with a Major in French Studies. Students taking an undergraduate degree in another Major may choose to add a Minor in French Studies as a secondary area of interest. The Department also participates in the Interdepartmental Minor in Comparative Literature. 

Sample Careers 

A command of both of Canada’s official languages is a definite asset in obtaining employment in almost every field. Students who graduate with a degree in French Studies can go on to teach or to become translators or interpreters. 

Careers in administration, government, industry, commerce, publishing, and journalism are among those favoured by French Studies graduates. 

In addition, speaking one or more languages is beneficial for careers in museums, libraries, travel, tourism, and companies having overseas offices.
