The BA After Another Undergraduate Degree

Students who have completed an undergraduate degree other than a Bachelor of Arts, may be admitted to the BA at Faculté Saint-Jean. All requirements detailed in Residence  and Degrees of Bachelor of Arts (Faculté Saint-Jean)  are to be met.

French Courses

All students, except those registered in the BEd/AD (see Programs ), BSc (see Degree of Bachelor of Science (Faculté Saint-Jean) ) and BSc (Environmental and Conservation Sciences - Bilingual) (see The program ) must complete a minimum of ★9 of French (FRANC), including FRANC 236 . Students in the BScN (Bilingual) program should consult Course sequence .

The objective of French language courses is to help the student speak and write clearly and correctly in situations that arise in everyday personal or professional life. The unique intercultural context that is Faculté Saint-Jean provides an ideal environment for such linguistic development.

FRANC 236 , mandatory for all students (except for the students in the BSc, BSc (Environment and Conservation-bilingual) and BScN-bilingual), presupposes a strong command of all aspects of French (grammatically, syntactically and lexically). It is the student’s responsibility to acquire such command of the language. To achieve this goal, Faculté Saint-Jean offers French language and linguistics courses (e.g., FRANC 116 , FRANC 117 , FRANC 213, FRANC 216 , FRANC 226 , LINGQ 200 ), and provides access to a French help centre. In order to ensure that students have achieved this goal, FRANC 226  or FRANC 227  are prerequisites for FRANC 236 . The Office of the Associate Dean (Academic) may grant an exemption for this course.
