Electives in French

Your Electives en français

Is the program you’re interested in only offered in English?

Not a problem. Take some of your elective courses in French to maintain and continue to improve your language skills.

Kill two birds with one stone:

Some of these elective courses go toward satisfying the WQB requirements that apply to all SFU students.  


Elective courses in French are ideal for students with an intermediate level of French (e.g. graduates from French immersion, the Programme francophone, etc.). Some courses offer the flexibility of submitting your assignments and writing exams in the language of your choice (English or French), while others require you to do so only in French. Contact our student advisor for more details: fcpmgr@sfu.ca.
