BA FRENCH

Bachelor of Arts in French

Growing global interdependence is a reality which cannot be overlooked. With widespread mobility as a result of the internationalization of many businesses, knowledge of more than one language is becoming increasingly valuable: tourists, technicians, business people, civil servants, diplomats, athletes and people from all walks of life are travelling more frequently. 

In learning another language, we enable ourselves to consider critically the ideas as well as the cultural similarities and differences of the world. This can be a positive force in creating wholesome attitudes towards the people represented by that language, and can broaden our understanding of people and the world.

 

Key Objectives

• Produce more bilingual specialists or professionals;

• Enhance functional usage of the French language;

• Familiarise students with career opportunities, working practices and environments for the professional language user;

• Facilitate better job opportunities for our students on the national as well as the international arena;

• Widen the horizon of learners to appreciate contemporary issues in the world of ideas so as to enable them to become good team players;

• Introduce students to the notions of formal and contextual coherence in discourse and sensitize them to the conventions of different types of professional genres

• Fit into the national policy on the teaching and learning of French;

• Contribute meaningfully towards regional integration and to eventually make the global village concept a reality.
