Elective courses taught in French

Elective courses in French, offered by other SFU departments or faculties 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. Some of these elective courses go toward satisfying the WQB requirements, which apply to all SFU students. These courses are often indicated by the F100 section. Contact fcpmgr@sfu.ca to learn more.
