 Required Academic Qualifications and Skills for FINS 2105, FINS 3105, FREN 1001, FREN 1002, FREN 1100, FREN 2100, FREN 3701

 The required minimum qualification is an MA in French or Applied Linguistics. However, a PhD in French or Applied Linguistics will normally count as a superior qualification. For degrees in French, given the nature of our French language program, a degree specialization in language pedagogy or applied linguistics will normally be considered as more relevant to the position than a degree in formal linguistics or literary and/or cultural studies. A desired qualification is experience developing curricular content and assessment tools. Native or near-native fluency and excellent written skills in French are required. Candidates should also possess a strong written and spoken knowledge of English (the working language at Carleton University). The required teaching experience is specified for each course below.
