The objective of French Immersion Studies is for you to develop an advanced level of French in your discipline. You must meet the following three requirements to receive a mention of “French Immersion” on your diploma:

  1. Complete the requirements of your program of study.
  2. Complete at least 14 courses (42 units)* taught in French.

    Depending on your Faculty, see details below:
