The BA After Another Undergraduate Degree

Students who have completed an undergraduate degree other than a Bachelor of Arts, may be admitted to the BA at Faculté Saint-Jean. All requirements detailed in Residence  and Degrees of Bachelor of Arts  are to be met.

French Courses

All students, except those registered in the BEd/AD (see Programs ), BSc (see Degree of Bachelor of Science ) and BSc (Environmental and Conservation Sciences - Bilingual) (see The program ) must complete a minimum of ★9 of French (FRANC or CA FR), including FRANC 322 . Students in the BScN (Bilingual) program should consult Course sequence .

The objective of French language courses is to teach the student to speak and write clearly and correctly in situations that arise in everyday personal or professional life. The unique intercultural context that is Faculté Saint-Jean provides an ideal environment for such development.

Progression of French-language courses

Base French courses : FRANC 116 , FRANC 117 , FRANC 216 , FRANC 226  

Consolidation courses : FRANC 213 , FRANC 217 , FRANC 227  

For the Base French Courses :

  • Students with a final mark equal or superior to B- can register directly in the next French course in the Base French series.
  • Students with a final mark of from D to C+ inclusively receive credit for the course but must register in the appropriate consolidation course before taking the next Base course.
  • Students who obtain F fail the course, but can reregister in it.

FRANC 322 , mandatory for all students (except for the students in the BSc, BSc (Environment and Conservation-bilingual) and BScN-bilingual), presupposes a strong command of all aspects of French (grammatically, syntactically and lexically). It is the student's responsibility to acquire such command of the language. To achieve this goal, Faculté Saint-Jean offers French language courses and provides access to a French help centre. In order to ensure that students have achieved this goal, FRANC 226  or FRANC 227  are a prerequisite for FRANC 322 . The Office of the Associate Dean (Academic) may grant an exemption for this course.
