The French Language Program offers teachers the opportunity to improve their skills, earn credit for professional development or continuing education, or qualify for a three-year MAT degree program. Teachers interested in joining the MAT program in French may apply after successful completion of two French courses in the World Languages Institute. The MAT program, which requires thirty credits of course work in French methodology, language, culture, or literature, is designed primarily for individuals already teaching French. These courses may be accepted for state certification. Details of the MAT program are available at the Department of French or its web site at http://french.rutgers.edu.

What does it mean for women to "come to writing" in French from outside the Hexagon? What strategies (language, irony, humor, madness, cultural imagination, etc.) do these post-colonial writers and artists from Guadeloupe, Mauritius, Algeria, Morocco, and Senegal use to "speak" to us from a position of silence and invisibility? In this course, we will examine issues of gender, race, and the importance of orality, history, and myth in the construction of new hybrid identities through women's voices in African and Caribbean writings and art exhibits. Conducted in French.
