French Comprehensive Exam October 29th, 2015

All MA and PhD students must complete a French comprehension exam as part of their degree requirements. This semester, the exam will take place:

Thursday, October 29th, 2015
9:45 – 12:45; FB 449

For further information about the MA and PhD graduation requirements please see the respective official texts from the PhD and MA descriptions in the Graduate Calendar:

All students must pass this test before receiving their degree, except those who have a diploma from a French-medium post-secondary institution.

A student may apply to be exempted from the French language test should competency in a language other than English or French be pertinent to the student’s research. This competency must be verified by the GPD.

For MA students, this 2-hour exam tests reading comprehension of a selected French-language text of film criticism or journalism.

For PhD students, the exam requires comprehension and ability to provide an approximate translation of short excerpts of a more challenging scholarly text, and you may take up to three hours.

In both cases, written answers are in English and dictionaries are allowed.

Please e-mail  GPA.Cinema@Concordia.ca to sign up for the exam.
