the Linguistics stream covers the core areas of phonetics, phonology, semantics, and syntax with the possibility of specializing in First Nations languages, African languages, first language acquisition, and experimental linguistics
the Cognitive Systems stream proceeds from the core areas of linguistics to specialized interaction with other disciplines such as art, computer science, music, philosophy, and psychology

Completion of the program usually takes two years, but after the first year, students interested in pursuing doctoral research can apply for a transfer directly into the second year of the Ph.D. program.

The M.A. program provides for two options. The minimum credit requirement for either option is 30.

M.A. without Thesis

1. 27 credits of course work in FREN numbered above 500, up to 6 of which may be drawn from 400-level undergraduate courses in literature or linguistics given in French.
2. French 548 (3), a Graduating Essay written in French. The length of the graduating essay should be approximately 40 pages, including the bibliography. It may be based on a paper submitted for a graduate course, but thoroughly revised and expanded.
3. A one-hour oral examination, normally conducted in the target language, based on the graduating essay and the student's overall graduate program.
4. Regular attendance in the French Research Seminar is mandatory and active participation and debate are expected.

M.A. with Thesis

1. 24 credits of course work in FREN numbered above 500, up to 6 of which may be drawn from 400-level undergraduate courses in literature or linguistics given in French.
2. French 599 (6) a Master’s Thesis written in either French or English. The length of the M.A. thesis should be approximately 80 pages including the bibliography.
3. A one-and-a-half hour oral thesis defence normally conducted in the target language.
4. Regular attendance in the French Research Seminar is mandatory and active participation and debate are expected.

M.A. candidates in French who are interested primarily in Linguistics may write a thesis on an aspect of French Linguistics and will be permitted, after consultation with the Graduate Advisor, to supplement the Linguistics courses offered in the Department itself by taking courses elsewhere at UBC (in the Department of Linguistics or the Faculty of Education, for example), or at other universities under the Western Deans' Agreement.
Only a concentration in linguistics is possible, however, and students specializing in this area will be required to take some courses in French Literature to complete their Master’s program.

Time for Completion of Program

The maximum time permitted for the completion of a Master’s Program is five years. In certain circumstances, it is possible to complete the M.A. in a twelve-month period. The maximum period of financial support for full-time study in the M.A. program is two years. The program is available to students on either a full-time or a part-time basis. There is no formal residence requirement.
