Students must complete a minimum of 54 hours including transfer work and/or work already completed for the M.A. degree. It is expected that course work will be finished by the end of the third year of study. Students graduate with a Ph.D. in French Studies and a concentration in one of four integrated areas:
Francophone colonial and post-colonial cultures. Atlantic, Caribbean and African area studies; creole(s) and creolization; Islam in France and Beur culture.
Visual cultures and technologies. Film; urbanism; new media and performance.
European studies. Human rights; political, cultural and institutional histories; medical anthropology; ethno-psychiatry.
Language and Identity. Literary theory, philosophy, ethics and law, minority languages and identities, world languages and literatures.
The Ph.D. will be conferred on the basis of completed course work, exams, and reading competence in a language pertinent to field of study, such as Arabic, Creole (both taught within the Department), Spanish, Italian, Latin, or German.
