This program follows the "dual languages" i.e., double major approach  which means that the French language is usually a foreign language to most students, while the English language is a secondary language.

Our program stands out by being  an applied language program for the purpose of preparing students for the job market.

The program offers a number of literary subjects with the aim of training students in critical thinking and not with the aim of graduating students specializing in literature.

The program also offers ESP courses in both languages: French and English, linguistic and applied skills courses.
