fellowships. In addition to recruitment fellowships, the Department of French
offers summer and/or partial fellowships, research assistantships, support for
research summer institutes, and conference travel support.

About the Department:

The Department of French has faculty representing a broad spectrum of fields,
including theoretical and applied linguistics, second language acquisition and
teacher education (SLATE), literature, cinema studies, civilization, cultural
studies, gender and women's studies, and post-colonial theory.

In French linguistics and SLATE, there is currently a cohort of 13 graduate
students and 4 full-time faculty members: Zsuzsanna Fagyal, Peter Golato,
Cristina Toharia, and Annie Tremblay. In addition to its degree programs,
students in the Department can obtain a graduate concentration in Romance
Linguistics and certificates in SLATE and in Translation Studies.

Students in French linguistics and SLATE receive extensive training that enables
them to do strong empirical research on the form, use, and acquisition, and
teaching of the French language. Areas of specialization include bilingualism
and language contact, dialectology, phonetics/phonology, psycholinguistics,
sociolinguistics, second language acquisition, second language pedagogy, second
language pragmatics, and second language speech and sentence processing.

The French linguistics and SLATE programs are interdisciplinary and have strong
ties with the Departments of Educational Psychology, Germanic Languages and
Literatures, Linguistics, Psychology, and Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese, as
well as with researchers at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science. Students
in French linguistics and SLATE have access to research facilities such as the
Illinois Phonetics and Phonology Lab, the Second Language Acquisition and
Bilingualism Lab, and other state-of-the-art research labs at the Beckman
Institute. The University's world-renowned Library, ranked among the top public
libraries in the US, offers online subscriptions to a large number of academic
journals. The Department also offers non-native speakers of French the
opportunity to participate in year-long exchange programs with Dijon, Li├Ęge,
Lyon, Metz, Poitiers, and Quebec.

In the past 5 years, the Department has placed 100% of its graduating PhD
students in top research institutions (e.g., Indiana University, University of
Texas, University of Wisconsin). Eighty-five percent of these placements were in
tenure-track positions.
