No need to look elsewhere! Offered jointly by the Faculty of Education and the Faculty of Arts, through the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute, these multidisciplinary undergraduate programs are the only ones of their kind in Canada. Courses cover the theories of language acquisition, as well as second language learning and teaching and explore the interrelationships between language, culture and society. What's more, upon graduation, if you want to work as a second language teacher and you meet the admission requirements of the Faculty of Education, a limited number of places are reserved for you in our Teacher Education (BEd) program. Several graduate program options are also available.

This program is offered in English and in French.

Specific admission requirement: a French proficiency test is required.

Program for anglophone students.

The French immersion stream is available with this program.

Requirements for this program have been modified. Please consult the 2015-2016 calendars for the previous requirements.

Students admitted in second language teaching will be given priority in registration for second language teaching (DLS) courses.
