French at Monash
The French Studies program is designed to enable students to develop a high level of communicative competence in the French language (including translation skills and specialised registers such as business French), and a critical awareness of fundamental areas of French studies: literature, film, philosophy, politics, cultural studies and linguistics. Students will develop writing and research skills appropriate to advanced independent study.
To determine your level of proficiency and which stream you should enrol in, take our Entry Level Test.
Australian Journal of French Studies
The French Studies program at Monash is the home of the Australian Journal of French Studies, an international, peer reviewed journal devoted to French literature, culture, society and history. There are three issues per year. The journal encourages new theoretical engagements and particularly welcomes interdisciplinary approaches. Articles are published in English and French. The majority of issues are focussed on a specific theme, but issues on miscellaneous topics are usually published annually. Articles for publication and proposals for special issues, and any editorial enquiries, should be addressed to the editor. See the journal page for news of recent and forthcoming numbers.
2013 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the foundation of the journal, and to celebrate this milestone a 25% discount is being offered to new institutional subscribers. Also, the editor has made a selection of some of the most notable articles from the journal’s history, which Liverpool University Press is delighted to make available free of charge online for a limited time.
