The UBC Library and the Departmental Reading Room have extensive holdings in French.

The program makes available a list of courses to be offered as early as possible, usually in February of the preceding academic year.

Doctor of Philosophy

Admission Requirements

Students admitted to the Ph.D. degree program normally possess an M.A. degree in French or a related area, with clear evidence of research ability or potential. Transfer from the M.A. to the Ph.D. program is permitted under regulations set by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and the Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies. Part-time Doctoral Classification is also available. Students who wish to be classified as part-time must obtain approval from their proposed supervisor and graduate program advisor as part of the admission process.

Program Requirements

The Ph.D. program consists of coursework, comprehensive examination, the PhD thesis proposal defense, and research leading to a dissertation that is defended in a final oral examination. For details on regulations, visit the Department (fhis.ubc.ca/graduate-program-in-french/phd-in-french/).
