 This master’s program is rooted both in research and professional applications. The aim is to produce trainers, teachers and researchers in Language Education and Teaching French as a Foreign and Second Language.

The degree is open to recent graduates and to continuing students.

It is accredited by three institutions, namely Sorbonne Nouvelle University – Paris 3, Université Paris Cité (Saint-Germain-des-Prés campus) and INALCO. The second year of the program offers a specialization in teaching French as a second language (for migrants, literacy purposes, etc.) and interculturality.

 The Master’s in Language Education presents students to the professional aspect of language teaching by having them acquire multidisciplinary knowledge and the skills required to teach a foreign language. The program also imparts a wide range of methodological skills from the humanities and social sciences (interviews, lexicostatistics, professional writing, etc.), allowing students to access careers linked to teaching culture (with the Institut Français, ministries, publishers, etc.).

Our graduates will have career prospects both in France and abroad thanks to the versatility of the program, which is based in solid academic teaching and methodology.
