Learn more about our programs.


Our programs offer a rich and varied education meant to open doors to teaching French and literature (from elementary school to university), public relations, arts journalism, editing and publishing. They also prepare you, as our alumni’s career paths show, for any positions that require advanced skills in summarizing and expressing ideas, in the private sector as well as in the public service, which is so important in Canada’s capital.
