Arts & Education

Why Arts & Education @ Memorial?

The Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures and the Faculty of Education have collaborated to create an exciting and unique program. We offer teachers of French and French immersion the opportunity to enhance their practice and to improve their mastery of the French language and francophone cultures. French teachers are able to further their studies and reflect on their teaching practices: French language, francophone cultures and literatures, second language acquisition as well as teaching methodologies.

The MA & Ed program boasts very competent and qualified full-time teachers and researchers who help the students become more competent and more equipped in their teaching careers. Students can complete this program on a part-time basis within their own schedule while still working in their profession. Thanks to the Digital Language Centre, students have access to the latest technologies that enable the Department to offer courses online. Memorial University is currently working on having all courses in an online format.

Description of program
