About this course

This dual degree program allows students to combine studies in the unique and innovative Bachelor of Social Science program with a wide range of majors in the arts. For example, foreign language studies can be combined with a major in Development. The Bachelor of Social Science teaches students how to develop strategies to help find solutions to a range of social issues at the local, national and international level.

The French language is still today one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. It is estimated that it is used by 77 million people as their first language and that it is spoken by a total of 128 million people. In this major students will study both French language and culture concurrently. Whether students wish to study French because it is one of the major diplomatic languages of the world; or simply because it is the language of love; students will need to understand something about French and Francophone culture. Students are able to study French without any prior knowledge or having done French at high school.
