Bienvenue - Welcome to the Department of French

The Department of French at Dalhousie University is the only full-program department of its kind east of Ontario, with programs leading to a BA, MA, and PhD.

We offer a wide range of courses in language, literature, linguistics, culture and civilization at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The department has an impressive profile as a very active and dynamic unit. It enjoys a solid regional, national and international reputation which rests in great part on the quality of its faculty members, most of whom are eminent teachers and scholars in their own right.

The diversity of offerings, the backgrounds and specializations of faculty members, the warm and student-friendly atmosphere, the competence of the administrative staff, the ideal classroom conditions (with an average of 30 students per first-year language class), the Cercle Français, the Club Français, the multiple learning opportunities provided by other academic units on campus, all combine to make studying in the Department of French at Dalhousie a uniquely exciting and enriching experience.
