Official Master's Degree in French as a Foreign Language and Linguistic Diversity

Introduction

The master's degree covers the problematics found in the teaching-learning of French, foreign languages, language contact, processes of language mediation and the optimisation of exolingual communication, areas in which the Department of French and Romance Languages of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona holds a high reputation, both nationally and internationally.
 
The training received will enable you to work as a professional in language mediation for French as a Foreign Language, FLE, a field whose central part is based largely, but not solely on education and which requires a mastery of the instrumental language as well as solid cultural references. These references go beyond the borders of continental France and encompass the entire area known as the Francophonie, covering all continents and with a particular presence in several African countries, in which French is a co-official language.

In terms of research, the master's degree aims to train future PhD students in French language and culture who can go on to complete their training with the UAB PhD in Romance Languages and Cultures, or with other similar university programmes around the world.

Presentation


Le Master proposé aborde les problématiques de l’enseignement-apprentissage du français langue étrangère, le contact des langues, les processus de médiation linguistique et l’optimisation de la communicaction exolingue, domaines dans lesquels le Département de Philologie Française et Romane de l’Université Autonome de Barcelone (UAB) est reconnu non seulement sur le plan national mais aussi sur le plan international.

La formation reçue permettra à l’étudiant de travailler en tant que professionnel de la médiation linguistique en FLE, domaine qui inclut l’enseignement mais qui va au-delà, requérant non seulement une parfaite connaissance de la langue instrumentale mais également de solides référents culturels, qui dépassent, bien sûr,  les frontières de l’Hexagone pour tenir compte de la Francophonie qui s’étend sur les cinq continents et qui est particulièrement active dans les pays africains où le français est une des langues officielles.

Pour ce qui concerne la recherche, le Master prétend former les futurs doctorants en langue et culture françaises qui peuvent compléter la formation soit à partir du programme de doctorat en Langues et Cultures Romanes de l’UAB, soit à partir de programmes similaires d’autres universités européennes voire même hors de l’espace européen.
