French Language and Literature

Ianua linguarum reserata

Degree programme specification

Studying the French language and its literature opens the door for students to understand the multicultural Francophone world. They can go on to master French; become familiar with the Francophone cultures of Europe, North America, and Africa; and understand their cultural contexts and ties. Beside acquiring knowledge of the practical language and specialized linguistic disciplines, such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, and syntax, students will learn about the history, culture, basic facts, lifestyles, institutions, and literatures not only of France and Canada but also of the Maghreb, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Caribbean.

Studying French will, on one hand, improve students' linguistic knowledge of the skills required in fields based on communication and communication technologies, such as translation or public service, while on the other it will build analytical capabilities, independence, and creativity.

Through a systematic training in connection with practical language, specialized linguistics, and literature, students will master the main principles of a cultivated written and spoken style in both French and Czech.
