French Linguistics Courses (FRE)

Linguistics (FRE):

200-level mandatory courses initiate students into the analysis of contemporary French and its historical development. 300-level courses break the discipline of linguistic analysis into its chief component parts. 400-level courses initiate students to research in a variety of areas including formal linguistics, bilingualism, second language acquisition, and language contact. The actual content of most 400-level courses varies considerably according to the instructor. Students should consult the French Studies Undergraduate brochure for content specific to a given year.

The Department takes into account the quality of students' French as one of the criteria in the evaluation of assignments and examinations. A minimum of 20% of the grade will be allocated to this aspect of written assignments.
