Overview

The Higher Certificate in French Literature has been developed by the Department of French, Maynooth University to address the needs of those working as teachers of French, graduates of French exploring other career options as well adults with a very good competence in French language who are interested in learning more about the literature and culture of the French-speaking countries.

The Higher Certificate in French Literature aims to:
- provide students with an opportunity to specialise in the area of French literature through the study of a broad range of French-language literary texts through history;

- equip students who have little experience of dealing with literary texts with the necessary academic, analytical, creative, aesthetic, reflective and presentation skills to enable them to engage with literature in a productive way;

- enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of important concepts in French-speaking literatures, cultures and societies.

See the website https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/french/our-courses/higher-certificate-french-literature

Minimum English language requirements:
- IELTS: 6.5 minimum overall score
- TOEFL (Paper based test): 585
- TOEFL (Internet based test): 95
- PTE (Pearson): 62

National University of Ireland Maynooth’s TOEFL code is 8850

Course Structure

The Higher Certificate in French Literature is a part-time programme that will be delivered in an open learning format incorporating distance learning and intensive workshops. It comprises a set of four 5-credit modules on which students will be examined by continuous assessment.
- 9 x 4-hour workshops: 36 hours
- Planned home-based learning activities: 88 hours
- Independent student activities: 144
- Total:268 hours

There will be a 4-hour introductory workshop at the start of the course. Each 5-credit module will also involve two 4-hour module workshops as well as ongoing scheduled activities and independent study. The nine workshops, normally organised on Saturdays, will provide an opportunity for participants to familiarise themselves with a variety of approaches to the literary text, to present and discuss their ideas about the texts they have read at home and to critically reflect on the way in which literature both reflects and feeds into issues of relevance to the societies in which the authors are writing.

There are two options for completing the Higher Certificate in French Literature:
- a 1-year part-time option, where students complete two 5-credit modules each semester and
- a 2-year part-time option, where students complete one 5-credit module each semester.

Before registration for the 1-year part-time programme, students should agree a study plan with the Programme Director.

Modules:
Semester 1:
- FR211D LITERATURE & SOCIETY 1 (Distance)
- FR221D LITERATURE & SOCIETY 2 (Distance)

Semester 2:
- FR311D LITERATURE & SOCIETY 3 (Distance)
- FR321D LITERATURE & SOCIETY 4 (Distance)

- Assessment Procedure
Participants will be expected to attend all course workshops, to prepare for those workshops by reading prescribed material, and to participate fully in the group process and learning. All four modules involved in the Higher Certificate in French Literature will be assessed by continuous assessment, which may involve a combination of methods such as essays, presentations at module workshops, or critical analysis of short excerpts from text. Participants will be advised on how to prepare for these and will receive feedback on their progress throughout the course.

Career Options

The Certificate in French Literature enables graduates working as Post-Primary language teachers to engage with a substantial body of literature through the medium of the foreign language. The course would furthermore constitute an ideal starting point for further study in literary and cultural studies, including the NUI Maynooth’s MA French and the MA in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures: Narratives of Conflict.

Overview

The taught MA in French is aimed at graduates with a primary honours degree in French, with a minimum of 2.2 or equivalent, who have spent a year in France, or who have equivalent expertise in French language. It is designed for graduates of French who wish to take their study of French language, literature and culture to a deeper level and to enhance their language skills. A significant proportion of the course is delivered and assessed through French. Core teaching involves modules on writing and presentation skills in French, practical translation and research methodology. The course is designed around the theme of writing and exile, a topic that corresponds to departmental research expertise in the modern and early modern periods. There are elective modules (taught through English) in women's writing, translation studies and conflict studies. The minor thesis (15,000-20,000 words) involves independent research and collaboration with a supervisor on an agreed subject.

It is possible to study modules of particular interest without completing a Masters degree or to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma (Level 9) in French after completing 60 credits of taught modules.

See the website https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/french/our-courses/ma-french

Course Structure

Modules include narratives of exile, intercultural studies, translation skills and contemporary European women's writing.

Career Options

Recent graduates from the taught MA in French have gone on to work in teaching at all levels, translating, administration involving use of Frenchand English, editing, management and tourism.

It aims to equip students with academic, analytical, creative, reflective and presentation skills in order to foster interest and involvement in the field of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with specific emphasis on narratives of conflict. It also aims to enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of important concepts of European languages, literatures, cultures and societies, in particular with regard to France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Spain and Latin American countries.

Course Structure

The part-time MA in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures: Narratives of Conflict involves two elements: a set of modules on which students will be examined at the end of the second year, and the minor thesis has to be submitted by the end of July of the second year for graduation in November of the same year. Alternatively, the thesis can be submitted by the end of October of the second year (without any additional financial implications) for graduation in September of the following year. Before registration for the part-time programme, students should agree a plan of taking modules with the Head of Subject of the ‘lead language.’

1. Students choose a ‘lead language’; they are obliged to take both language modules in this language.

2. Students have to take at least one (in French two) of the subject-specific modules offered by the lead language subject.

3. Students have to take ML 610 (Research Skills) and the modules concerned with narratives of conflict.

4. For the remaining 10 credits, students can either choose the remaining subject-specific module(s), or they can choose two of the remaining SMLLC modules.

6. Minor theses will be supervised by SMLLC Full-time members of staff after consultation with the student.

Career Options

This interdisciplinary MA gives students an ideal starting point for an academic career in literary studies, conflict studies or language studies. The combination of subject-specific, interdisciplinary and transferable skills, which are the intended outcome of the programme, would also make it a useful qualification for entry into the teaching profession, research work, or for careers with an international dimension, in diplomacy, journalism, business or academia.
