The French programs at U of T Mississauga offer students a wide range of courses designed to provide the basis for the study of French in Canada and throughout the French-speaking world. These courses focus on language learning, linguistics (e.g., structure of the language, bilingualism), literary & cultural studies, and the teaching of French.

At the core of all of our programs are two series of language courses: 1) FSL105H5, FSL106H5, FSL205Y5, FSL305Y5, FSL405H5, FSL406H5 for the Minor in Functional French; 2) FRE180H5, FRE181H5, FRE280Y5, FRE382H5, FRE383H5, for the Minor, Major and Specialist in French Studies and the Major & Specialist in Language Teaching & Learning.

**Before enrolling in a French language course for the first time all students MUST complete the Placement Test (**

Native speakers of French are not permitted to take FSL105H5, FSL106H5, FSL205Y5, FSL305Y5, FSL405H5, FSL406H5, FRE180H5, FRE181H5. Such students, however, may take any FRE course for which FRE181H5 is a prerequisite.

Native or native-like speakers of French are encouraged to take FRE 200-level courses in French Linguistics, French Literary and Cultural Studies and Teaching and Learning (FRE225Y5, FRE240H4, FRE241H5, FRE272Y5). They may also take FRE382H5, FRE442H5 & FRE482H5 if recommended by the Placement Test.

U of T Mississauga's French graduates have moved on to graduate studies and to careers in business, teaching, government, translation, and other fields where skills in French are a necessity.


  1. Courses with an FSL designator cannot be counted towards a Major or Specialist program in French Studies.
  2. Students who have attended French-language schools and/or who hold a French or International Baccalaureate CANNOT enrol in any FSL course and MUST consult with the French Program Coordinator PRIOR to enrolling in any FRE course.
  3. Students wishing to take a non-credit French course (e.g., Canada’s Explore program) and who wish to request that this course be considered for credit toward their degree should contact the French Program Coordinator before beginning their course. They should take the French Placement Test both before and after the course.

Students should also review the Degree Requirements section prior to selecting courses
