It gives you high-level knowledge and skills in French which will allow you to operate with confidence and skill in French linguistic and cultural contexts.

The research thesis gives you an opportunity to work intensely on a topic of your choice. The research skills you acquire will prepare you well for work in many areas of government, business and policy development as well as for further postgraduate study.
