  1. Hi all, I may be a bit early, but I wanted to open a thread for anyone interested in applying for French PhDs/MAs for 2022. Knowing that graduate admissions last year were fairly brutal (though previous threads seem to offer a glimmer of hope!), I anticipate that many potential applicants will try their luck this go-around. I'm still deciding on a list of schools, but my research interests lie primarily on the 20th century novel, urban studies, postcolonial studies, and histories of emotion in contemporary French political life. Admittedly, this will be my first serious foray into t
  2. Salut! I know it's pretty early, but I thought I would get the thread started for the next application cycle. I haven't narrowed down my list of schools, but I study eighteenth-century literature, culture, and political thought with emphasis on trade and commerce. Excited to see who else is applying and what you want to research! 😊
  3. I'll be a senior in the fall finishing my BA in Government at Cornell. I ultimately want to teach and do a bit of research on the side; my ultimate career goal is to pursue a Ph.D. and end up at a teaching college, probably in the US. I'm also interested in working in public service, preferably the federal government. Since I don't feel ready to apply for a Ph.D. quite yet, and many have advised me to take a few years to do something else before doctoral study, I'm trying to think about what I should apply for in the next year. The job market seems as though it well be very unkind to a graduat
  4. Bonjour à tous, à toutes! (Pasting this here as well, as it's my first time on GradCafé and idk which forum is more appropriate) I've applied to several PhD programs in French (some : NYU, Yale, Princeton, Brown, UVA, Cornell, etc.) and I'm most impatiently waiting to hear any news ... so far, the radio silence is starting to get to me. Has anyone heard anything ... anything at all (from anywhere - doesn't have to be the above listed schools)? Any news or information would be appreciated immensely! I'm an Early Modernist currently finishing an MA with several niche areas of resea
  5. Hey guys, not really sure if I should post this in a different area, but I figure maybe someone else applied and was accepted to University of Pittsburgh or can relate. I received an acceptance email from the Director of Graduate Studies in French at Pitt letting me know the admissions committee decided to accept me. This was back in February. He mentioned that they have a holding pattern on funding and that it would be a few more weeks until he can let me know any funding details, and that he would get back to me when it's settled and just let him know if I receive other offers. But I ha
  6. Both seem great, though highly different, options. At times, I find myself considering the schools through a Head/Heart dichotomy, where: Heart = Berkeley; Head = Princeton. This may be foolishness, but there it is. *** Princeton Pros: Better stipend, less teaching, cheaper cost of living, proximate to New York and Philly, more funding for archival research, language study, and conference travel. Princeton Cons: (Allegedly) more traditional and hierarchical, not exactly a vibrant town, smaller [possibly a pro], more self-enclosed, less pleasant weather/environment overall.
  7. Hi Everyone! This was actually @xinyu_uynix's idea, but I agreed and wanted to hear folks' plans or opinions during the decision making process. I'm probably not the best one to start the conversation because I applied to a mixture of French, Comparative Literature, and Romance (French/Spanish) PhD programs. But I think this is true for a couple of others as well. So far I've been accepted and offered funding at Penn State Comparative Literature and U of Michigan French. I've been accepted with funding but no official funding package yet at Comp. Lit. UC Berkeley. I'm interviewing / doing a vi
  8. Bonjour Ă  tous, Ă  toutes! I've applied to several PhD programs in French (some : NYU, Yale, Princeton, Brown, UVA, Cornell, etc.) and I'm most impatiently waiting to hear any news ... so far, the radio silence is starting to get to me. Has anyone heard anything ... anything at all (from anywhere - doesn't have to be the above listed schools)? Any news or information would be appreciated immensely! I'm an Early Modernist currently finishing an MA with several niche areas of research, so for the purpose of anonymity, I'm going to leave it at that. Wishing everyone good luck and
  9. Hello all! I'm currently a teaching assistant in French (I'm french) in a pretty good university and I'm going to apply to PhD programs in the fall (I'm really interested in narratology, Nouveau Roman, film and poetry, so NYU and U of Chicago might be interesting) I wanted to start an application thread to have an idea of what kind of universities people are applying to. So: where are you applying to and why?
  10. My girlfriend and I will be applying to French PHD programs in the NY area (Rutgers, Colombia, Princeton, NYU, UPenn) as well as in the southeast (University of Virginia, Duke) and several universities in Canada (UniversitĂ© de MontrĂ©al and McGill). I’m also interested, but have not yet check out, universities in California such as UCLA, Stanford, or Yale. (For the latter, I read that PHD applicants must have a year of teaching experience and this is not my case.) We are both currently in masters of comparative at Paris 3 (Sorbonne Nouvelle). For my part, l have been a resident in France
  11. Hi all - I have a question about which direction I should go for a masters program. I am transitioning from a career in law and would like to get a PhD in French literature and culture. I'm going to start with a masters program so that I can demonstrate research proficiency in the field, provide relevant work samples for PhD applications, and show that I am serious about the transition. My question is whether it would be helpful or harmful to do the masters in Comparative Literature, rather than in French studies or French lit. The Comp Lit program requires a dissertation at the end, and my pr
  12. Hi all, I'm a third-year studying literature at a lower-tier UC, and I'm thinking about grad school, though frankly I'm a little lost, so I'd appreciate some input from those more experienced. I'd like to get a terminal MA both because I'm too lost -- meaning, I don't know what I want to specialize in, what my research strengths are, or even if I'm cut out to spend years of my life spending lit. -- and because I'd like to teach community college or maybe high school. Of course, I'd like to do it without accruing too much debt, too. But my questions are as follows: -- I've j
  13. So I want to apply to grad school for speech path this upcoming year. My main concern is my horrible mark that I got in Phonetics - C+. It is my lowest mark and I know that a lot of schools look at prereqs in which case Phonetics is typically one. I have a B+ average and hoping to get more A's this year to at least bring up my GPA. I am also a French minor (fluent in French) and wanted to apply to either Université d'Ottawa, Université du Québec, Université de Laval and Université de Montréal. Anyone who has applied to these schools or attended them? Or any advice at all in terms of getting in
  14. Hey everybody, Anybody knows of the quality of UW Madison for French MA en route to Ph. D program? Asking because I get some red flags from: 1) a student I knew from undergrad got accepted and her GPA/grades were average 2) no info about job placement for graduates on their website and 3) website says it takes less than 4 years to complete. Also, financial aid-wise the information doesn't sound promising. Just wondering if anyone had any info on the department. Thanks.
  15. Hello everybody, This is the first draft of my personal statement for UI-Bloomington's French grad (MA/PhD) program. I realize most people advice to avoid writing statements that sound like an accomplishment list but since for this one I had only 500 words, I went for this traditional route and simply stated why I think I am a good fit. The ending sounds a bit corny so I might definitely drop it (I had a good story to go along with that ending, but I ran out of words). Let me know what you think, any advice, suggestions, word is very welcome. This is the first I've written so far,
  16. Hello everyone! I am currently investigating programs in French and Francophone Studies. I'm interested modern literature and poetry. Does anyone have any suggestions or experiences that they could share?
  17. I thought I'd start a thread for us to update when we hear responses (good or not so good) from French MA and PhD programs. (If this already exists elsewhere, please let me know!) It's still a bit early for most institutions, but I know some are calling for interviews already and based on past years' threads it should ramp up soon! So where has everyone applied? Who have you heard from so far? Top choices? So excited to hear everyone's experiences. Thanks!
  18. Hi all! I am a first-year student studying art history, and a requirement of my university's program is that I study two different languages. I am planning on taking a course this summer so I can put lots of focus into it. I am currently taking French, and am between taking either Italian or German this summer. I am interested in going to graduate school as well (and know that a lot of schools require reading knowledge of certain languages) and am most interested in the Renaissance and Baroque eras as of yet, so that's why I am focusing on Italian and German. I'm split be
  19. Hi! I'm a student of English Studies from Poland and this year I'm writing my BA dissertation on "The Influence of the Norman Invasion on English Language". In the 1st chapter I wanted to present how Old English and Norman French looked like before the invasion but I lack any information on the latter. If you could direct me to some websites, books, or articles on the topic, I would appreciate it very much. These may include linguistic records of the language of Normans and the language before the Vikings had settled in Normandy. Thanks in advance! PS. Perhaps some of you are able to
  20. Hello everyone! I currently live in Quebec, Canada. I am currently studying in an English university for which I am allowed to submit any written work in French. I've always wanted to study abroad, especially for my graduate studies, for the experience and to be able to learn from a different perspective. But I am often blocked by the fact that I cannot submit written work in my first language. Don't get me wrong: I can read and understand English perfectly. I can also write, but I definetly need some grammar help (if you have not noticed already in this post). I do not see myself wr
  21. Hello everyone! I am currently investigating programs in French and Francophone Studies. I'm interested modern literature and poetry. Does anyone have any suggestions or experiences that they could share?
  22. Hello all! I am writing to ask if any of you either stumbled across an answer in your own research or know of something at your university. I am looking for a program that would effectively allow me to work (well, aspire to work) in an interdisciplinary philosophy of music space. My interests and abilities are diverse, and that is making me hesitant to apply to either "plain old" philosophy programs, where work in music would likely be very minor -- I only really know of Columbia having much discussion, and even then not much, or musicology programs, in which there is less focus on rigor
  23. So, just got accepted to an AWESOME program in French at University College London and it's my number one top choice. I applied for every scholarship I could before the string of deadlines that seem to creep up in early February. I keep looking at their website, as if there's going to be any new information magically posted when, in fact, I know nothing. Does anybody have any experience trying to fund a PhD overseas or have a friend that was able to avoid taking out the $30,000/yr in loans that it would require? If you know anything about the scholarships at UCL, that'd be great, too - i.e.
  24. Hi everyone, I am an international student and I got a call from UPenn, and an email from Yale inviting me for an interview. The first one is a campus visit/interview. The second will be via Skype. (I applied for a PhD in French Studies). I have no idea what the interview will be about! If you could offer any help/advice, it would be greatly appreciated! PS: Good luck everyone who is going through the excruciating pain of waiting!
