Our distinguished faculty have a wide range of teaching and research interests, and together cover all periods of French and Francophone literature and culture and language studies. All of our graduate classes are discussion-based seminars, so students enjoy a communal approach to education and forge meaningful intellectual relationships with their professors. As a Teaching Assistant (TA), you will also be trained in the latest advances in second-language pedagogy. The University of Utah has an excellent research library, rare book collection, film and video collection, and Fine Arts Museum.
The French Studies program of the Department of Languages & Literature is committed to offering students a truly eclectic forum for the study of literature and culture. Our approach is multicultural and interdisciplinary. Graduate students in French work alongside students in German, Spanish, and Comparative Literature. We draw our diverse student population from North America, Europe, and Africa.
