Non-degree seeking enrollment option for non-graduate pursuits:
If you completed a Bachelor’s degree with a minimum 3.0 GPA and wish to take an upcoming course in the department ad hoc, please note that fluency in the French language will be necessary to succeed in graduate-level courses. Please detail your preparedness and motivation toward taking coursework in the Department of French, Francophone and Italian Studies in your statement of purpose.
Non-degree seeking option for students who do not meet graduate program prerequisites:
Students who have studied in appropriate fields and/or gained appropriate in-country experience with language skills, but who lack sufficient prerequisites, may consider applying to KU Graduate Studies and the Department as non-degree-seeking (NDS) students in order to make up any gaps in academic study. After meeting the prerequisites with a 3.0 GPA or better, NDS students may apply for admission to the French graduate degree programs.
Consult with the Department's Director of Graduate Studies before beginning any remedial work.
*Completion of NDS coursework to fulfill prerequisites will not guarantee graduate program admission as graduate applications are considered holistically.
