    The Department of French and Italian at the University of Pittsburgh is currently accepting applications for its MA/PhD and PhD programs in French. Our teaching and research strengths are global and transhistorical, and they are organized into four networks: gender and sexuality, film and media, nation/transnation, and environment. Students have the opportunity to take departmental seminars that focus on a historical period or geographic context and seminars that explore our networks from a diachronic perspective. These research networks extend out into the many departments and programs around campus with which we collaborate, and students are encouraged to take seminars, work with faculty, and pursue graduate certificates in African Studies; Cultural Studies; Digital Studies and Methods; European Union Studies; Film and Media Studies; Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies; Global Studies; Medieval and Renaissance Studies; and West European Studies. Pittsburgh is a vibrant, diverse, and thriving urban community, consistently ranked among the most livable cities in the United States.


    The University of Pittsburgh supports students for five years by providing full tuition scholarships, teaching and research fellowships, and individual health insurance coverage at no cost. Applicants from underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply as there are additional fellowships available at the University level. The application deadline is January 15th, 2022.


    Our department offers a welcoming and supportive community in which students can develop their interests within and beyond the academy. Students are closely mentored by faculty from the day they arrive to the day they graduate through informal mechanisms and organized preprofessional workshops and coursework. Students receive pedagogical training at all levels of the curriculum, and advanced students have the opportunity to teach at the third-year level in courses such as Reading French: Literature, Media, Culture; France in the 21st Century; and Speaking French: Atelier d’expression orale. Advanced PhD students also gain experience teaching courses in English on gender and sexuality and French cinema. Students also have the opportunity to learn how to teach for study abroad through our summer program in Nantes. Full-year research and teaching abroad experiences are available through our partnerships with the University of Nanterre. Summer funding for research and travel are available at the departmental, college, and university levels.

    The Department of French and Italian is recruiting outstanding candidates for advanced study leading to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. We welcome applicants from historically underrepresented groups for whom additional internal fellowships are often available. Students with non-traditional backgrounds are also encouraged to apply.

    Our research expertise encompasses French and Francophone cultural studies, including the African continent, the Caribbean, the Maghreb, and Québec, from the Early Modern period to the present day. Our dynamic, innovative, and interdisciplinary program offers seminars in French and Francophone literature, culture and film, in addition to French language and linguistics. With the guidance of internationally recognized faculty specializing in a range of genres and issues and reflective of the diversity and complexity of the French-speaking world, students develop competencies in innovative research methods and approaches such as critical theory, gender and sexuality studies, colonial and post-colonial studies, cultural and media criticism, ecocriticism and digital humanities, among others. 

    Located just outside of Washington D.C., the University of Maryland is located in one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse parts of the country. Moreover, the university as a whole stands as a model for diversity through its student population and programming, and the college leads the university in the percentage of minorities among faculty, students, and staff, largely because of its multicultural approach to the curriculum. Our department embraces ideals of social justice, diversity and inclusion, and we are deeply committed to providing leadership and expertise that enriches the experiences of individuals and builds stronger communities. 

    The program offers competitive funding opportunities, including fellowships and assistantships with health insurance eligibility and full tuition remission for both M.A. and Ph.D. students. Additional funding is available, including conference travel, summer research grants as well as internal fellowships for the duration of the program. The program also features exchange programs and partnerships with Université de Nice and the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France.

    The deadline for applications is January 15, 2022 for the Ph.D. in Modern French Studies (FRMS) and for the M.A. in French Language and Literature (FRIT).

    The French Section of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures is currently accepting applications to the MA and PhD degree programs for the academic year 2022-2023.

    The French Graduate program covers a range of literary culture from medieval to contemporary fiction, from New Caledonia to the Indian Ocean, to Canada, from body language in the sixteenth century to bodily inscriptions such as tattooing practicing in Oceania, to literary and non-literary translation. Students can add a minor in another language (German or Spanish), and in fields like English, History, Human Rights, and Medieval and Renaissance studies. Or students can deepen their command of French culture with more French courses. Students will also have the opportunity to take cutting-edge, team-taught courses, creative writing, and courses in cultural studies. Recent course offerings include graduate seminars on humor, French women writers, and the detective novel, and other advanced classes including the French fairy tale genre, ecological fiction in the Francophone world, literary translation, and autofiction.

    Ours is a cosmopolitan department. Current and recent French students hail from Nebraska, Colorado, Minnesota, Ghana, Tunisia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Belgium, and France. You will also get to know students in the Spanish and German graduate programs from Spain, Germany, and Latin America. We are also a smaller department, which has the advantage of offering students individualized attention and a warm, collegial experience.

    Through an agreement with the Université Gustave Eiffel in the Paris suburbs, UNL graduate students in French are eligible to apply to spend a year living in Paris or the environs and teaching English at the university level.

    Funding is available as graduate teaching assistantships, augmented by fellowships that are awarded to recognize merit, to support presenting papers at academic conferences, and to reward scholarly publications.
