PHD ADMISSIONS FOR 2021
In light of the uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 emergency, the Department of French has decided not to admit students to the PhD program in French in 2021. Doctoral admissions will resume in 2022. We believe that this decision will enable us to focus at this challenging moment on the needs of our current students and to welcome new students in the best possible pedagogical circumstances.
If you are interested in applying in 2022 but would like to speak with our faculty and students this fall, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Professor Madeleine Dobie. Admissions to our MA program in French will proceed as usual in 2021.
Congratulations to Aubrey Gabel, winner of a Lenfest Junior Faculty Development Grant, for her project “Outliers: Contemporary French Writers Playing Politics”!
