French Cohort Program

Program Details

The French Cohort Program (FCP) allows you to explore three fields of study on your path towards a BA: Political Science, French and History. While studying, primarily in French, topics such as international diplomacy, Canadian policy and the French language, you will not only learn theory, you will apply it through hands-on community projects and bilingual job opportunities.

After being fully immersed in a European or Quebecois setting during your third-year student exchange, you will come back inspired and ready to take on life.

You will reap the benefits of attending a large university, while experiencing a personalized education: French language supportexclusive bursariesstudent life in French, access to a dedicated space for students who speak French, a full-time student advisor for the FCP ... and of course, your cohort, the small group (20-30 students) that will become your university family.
