The Capstone Certificate of Professional French Studies is an interdisciplinary program of study which develops and enhances professional skills for careers demanding an advanced comprehension of French and French-language cultures.

The Certificate principally enhances academic credentials and professional experience already earned by the student, within a chosen concentration area: Business, Education, European Union Affairs, International Development, International Education, and Media/Arts/Cultural Production. The student is required to complete 20 credits, 17 of which must be fulfilled by core French classes and 4 professional skills workshops. The required professional internship abroad accounts for three credits.

At the heart of the PFMP is the required professional internship in a French-speaking international organization. Both MFS and Certificate students complete the internship, in an organization directly related to the student's chosen concentration area.

We also offer a Master of French Studies (MFS).
