If you studied French as a second language in an English high school, you have an opportunity to obtain your bachelor’s degree with the “French immersion” designation for many programs or the “Extended French Stream” designation for the programs offered by the Faculty of Science. This option is tailored to the personal linguistic objectives of all students aspiring to improve or perfect their
French‑language skills.
