Through a special arrangement with the Graduate School, doctoral students in the French Department can earn the Certificate of Achievement in French Studies by completing any four IFS courses (with at least a B average).
- Students wishing to supplement their literary studies with work on French society, politics and culture are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
- It may also help to certify students' competence to teach French civilization when they seek academic posts in the future.
Two of the four courses must be counted within the 72 points allowed for with a MacCracken Fellowship. The two additional courses are free for MacCracken Fellows, bringing their total points to 80. Students should also note that when enrolling in a course that is cross-listed, the student must register for the 'IFST' section.
