Course Summary

In studying French at UCD, you will: develop your communication skills and critical thinking by exploring the language and cultures of France and other French speaking countries; broaden your understanding and command of a language that is both European and global; and equip yourself for today’s increasingly diverse society and workplace by enhancing your cultural awareness and intellectual flexibility.

Opportunities exist for suitably qualified students to spend an extra year abroad and graduate with a BA (International). If you wish to reach the level of linguistic proficiency required by employers, we recommend that you opt for the four-year BA (International) degree. Alternatively, if you wish to study more than one language, with a year abroad, consider DN541 Modern Languages.

French can be studied as a Joint Major or Minor subject through DN520, as a Minor subject through DN700 or alongside selected additional subjects as part of DN530.
