Graduate Program in French
The aim of the Ph.D. program in French is to train the next generation of scholars and university teachers of French language and literature. The job placement of former students attests to its success. (The department does not currently offer a graduate program in Italian; it does, however, sometimes offer graduate-level courses in Italian literature and culture.)
The academic structure of the program enables students to acquire a broad understanding of the whole field of French studies as well as a secure grasp of their own field of concentration, and prepares them to develop independently as scholars and teachers.
Students accepted for the Ph.D. program enjoy financial support for five years, although readmission each year depends on satisfactory performance. They also hold part-time Assistantships in Instruction.
Applicants to the program should consult our own FAQs in addition to the appropriate pages of Princeton’s Graduate School.
