Master in French and Romance Languages and Literatures : French as a Second Language [120.0] - FLE2M
This degree has twin objectives which are distinct yet complementary by providing advanced training either in French-speaking communities, or in the teaching of French as a foreign language (FLE) or as a second language (FLS).
The part of the training on French-speaking communities (linked with the research focus) is centred on an interdisciplinary perspective, emphasizing linguistic and literary approaches, but also taking an interest in the political and institutional context.
The part of the training in French as a foreign language (linked with the professional focus) is designed to build knowledge of concepts, procedures and strategies which are vital educational tools to acquire for effective teaching of French as a foreign or second language. There is an emphasis on the culture of the learners the teacher will meet. Theoretical classes alternate with more practical ones and there are also periods of teaching practice in language schools.
This programme does not offer a teaching focus and does not lead to the award of the full teaching qualification for higher secondary education (l’Agrégation de l’enseignement secondaire supérieur - AESS). However, combined with the AESS (French and Romance Languages and Literatures; 30 credits in 1 year), this Master’s degree enables students to teach French as a foreign and second language (without the full qualification).
The programme is made up of :
♦ core courses (75 credits), made up of :
- 28 dissertation credits and 2 credits for the accompanying seminar;
- 35 credits in shared courses;
- 10 credits in one of the two programmes of study offered (French as a foreign language or 'Francophonies');
♦ a research focus (30 credits) or a professional focus (30 credits);
♦ and one option or optional course (15 credits).
The joint degree programme with Hanoi (for students enrolled at UCL) is made up of :
