French Cohort Program

Public and international affairs

The French Cohort Program (FCP) in Public and International Affairs is a bilingual program that allows you to explore three fields of study on your path to a BA: Political Science, French and History.

Two languages, twice the possibilities

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 experiences within the community 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 program-specific student advisor for FCP students ... and of course, your cohort, the small group (20-30 students) that will become your university family.

What’s more, this bilingual program offers a world-class education delivered by a team of committed instructors who are recognized in their fields and whose range of expertise exemplifies the rich diversity of international Francophonie.

Don't forget that 84% of Canadian employers prefer to hire bilingual candidates, while only about 10% of young professionals actually are – imagine the advantage you will have!
