Admission and Degree Requirements
A student must have completed at least 12 semester hours of advanced work in French to be admitted into the graduate program. Graduate applicants to UNT are evaluated holistically, based on specific departmental and program requirements. In the past, successful candidates usually have met a minimum GPA of 3.00 in the undergraduate degree for admission to a master's program at UNT. Note that a 3.5 GPA in advanced undergraduate French courses is preferred. An applicant who does not meet these recommended GPA criteria will need a very strong application in order to be considered for admission into the MA-French program. See the Program Handbook (link provided below) for additional details.
Students can choose from two program options:
- The Thesis Option requires 36 semester hours, including 6 hours of thesis; at least 24 hours of course work must be completed in the major; a minor of 6 hours is permitted. For this option, students must pass an oral defense of the thesis.
- The Non-Thesis Option requires 36 hours of course work; at least 30 hours must be earned in the major; a minor of 6 hours is permitted. For this option, students must pass a written comprehensive examination.
