The Institute of French Studies (IFS) offers several M.A. programs devoted to the interdisciplinary study of modern France and the French-influenced world. These programs combine rigorous cross-cultural training, vibrant intellectual exchanges within and outside the classroom, a tight-knit community in our townhouse on historic Washington Mews, and the cultural resources of New York City.
Prospective students can select the M.A. in French Studies or a joint masters' program that combines significant coursework at the IFS with a degree in journalism, business or law. Qualified NYU juniors and seniors enrolled in the College of Arts and Science or Global Liberal Studies may pursue a B.A./M.A. degree in French studies.
All applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree and have a strong reading and spoken knowledge of French. For further information or to access the application for admission, please see our program FAQ’s and the GSAS Application Resource Center.
