In the 1970s the Department of French of the University of Toronto had over 120 professors and instructors making it the largest Department of its kind in the world. Over the years the Department of French has offered internationally recognized courses and programs of the very highest quality, enabling graduates to find jobs at institutions in Canada, North America, and Asia.

French Studies at the University of Toronto provide varied and flexible approaches to one of the world’s major international languages and the diversity of cultures expressed in it.

French is not only one of the official languages of Canada: it is also one of the world’s major international languages. Courses in French studies provide a varied, flexible, and in-depth examination of the French language and the multitude of cultures that it serves. The skills and knowledge acquired will lay the groundwork for careers in teaching, journalism, translation, publishing, and government service as well as research in a variety of fields. In the Canadian job market, command of the French language is a definite asset. The Department offers students an integrated curriculum, which brings together courses in language, didactics, linguistics, literature, and French culture. Unless specified otherwise, the language of instruction of all courses is French.
