Département de Français

Faculty Members at Bar-Ilan's Department of French Culture are some of the world's most experienced and renowned experts and researchers in their fields, having established numerous academic collaborations with leading institutions.  Our professors publish books and articles in prestigious journals all over the world, and are sought-after lecturers in professional conferences and conventions.

France was and still is a prominent superpower from the political and economic perspectives, but most importantly – from the cultural perspective. The influence of French culture far exceeds the borders of France, a remnant of an era when France was a global empire, ruling Africa, South East Asia and North America. 

The Knowledge of the French language, culture and history is imperative in many fields, and required for work in the UN, the OECD, and many other international organizations. Therefore, a degree in this field provides graduates with a significant competitive advantage in the job market.

Israel has established close diplomatic and commercial relations with France, and a degree in French Studies opens the door to many high-profiled career options in finances, diplomacy, administration, media, telecom, advertising and high-tech. A degree in French Studies also prepares graduates for a career as translators and interpreters, two professions currently in high demand both locally and internationally.

The Department of French Culture at Bar-Ilan University offers study tracks for a B.A. degree, which includes courses in French culture, literature, linguistics and history, and study tracks for M.A. (thesis and non-thesis) and Ph.D. degrees.

The Department of French Culture puts great emphasis on the study of culture and language of one of the most illustrious cultures of Western civilization, as well as offering courses whenever possible on Francophone literature and culture from Quebec, North and Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Caribbean.
