The Certificate Program in French and Francophone Studies encourages participation in UWM’s foreign study programs in France (Paris, Orleans, and Bordeaux), Canada (Montreal and Quebec), and Senegal (Dakar), and fosters interaction with students from French-speaking countries enrolled in UWM programs.

The certificate program is open to all students seeking a bachelor’s degree from UWM, to students who previously received a bachelor’s degree from UWM or any other accredited college or university, and to those who do not plan to pursue a college or university degree (non-degree students) but who have a strong interest in this subject. To be admitted to the university as non-degree students, individuals must meet regular university admission requirements. Students currently involved in baccalaureate studies who successfully complete the requirements of the program will be awarded the certificate at the time of graduation. Students who already have a bachelor’s degree and non-degree students receive the certificate upon completion of the program requirements. All students are required to complete an exit survey before the certificate is awarded.

Students must achieve a grade-point average of 2.75 or higher in the courses that satisfy the program requirements, and all such courses must be graded.  They cannot be taken on a credit/no credit basis.

Certificate students who are majoring or minoring in French must take at least 9 credits outside the French curricular area.

Credits earned at other institutions in equivalent FFS courses will be accepted in partial fulfillment of the requirements. Students must obtain the approval of the certificate program committee to apply more than 9 credits from courses at other institutions to the UWM program.

Students currently enrolled at UWM who fulfilled some of the program’s requirements prior to its approval may have their credits applied retroactively toward the certificate.

To obtain a certificate in FFS with language proficiency, students must complete, as part or in addition to the certificate requirements, 9 credits in language, literature, or culture courses taught in French and numbered 300 or above.

Students enrolled in the program must complete at least 18 credits from the list of courses (see below) approved for the certificate, including:

I. 3 credits in a French language course numbered 200 or above;

II. 3 additional credits in humanities;

III. 6 credits in social sciences;

IV. 6 credits in courses dealing with Europe;

V. 6 credits in courses dealing with Francophone areas outside of Europe;

VI. 9 Of the courses taken to complete these requiremenets, 9 credits must be in courses numbered 300 or above.
