Placement for French language courses
If you decide to take a French course as part of your program (whether you are taking a major in French or not), you will initially have to fill out the online placement questionnaire which will help you establish your level of French. The final score will determine the courses you may register in through Carleton Central. Keep in mind that you can only take this test once. Please be as accurate as possible while filling out the test. French skills are checked during the first week of class.
Please note that this placement test is intended for Carleton students who have never taken a French course at Carleton before. If you have already taken and passed a French course at Carleton, then you should enroll in the next course via Carleton Central.
Choosing your courses: we are here to help
Course selection is one of the most important decisions facing all undergraduate students. Program requirements, course prerequisites, limited enrolments, balanced study loads are some of the issues that must be carefully considered. To help you with this process, we recommend you follow the three steps below:
Step 1: familiarize yourself with the requirements and options for your particular program of study, as described in the Undergraduate Calendar.
Step 2: Plan your course selection in the winter term for the next academic year.
Step 3: Meet early with an advisor, either during the March Advising period, or by appointment with the Honours, Majors & Minors Supervisor.
Getting away from the lecture hall: consider our First Year Seminar
Come and discover World literature in French. First-year BA students are strongly encouraged to include a First-year Seminar (FYSM) in their first-year course load. Our First-year Seminar will get you away from the lecture hall and give you the chance, in a small class of no more than 30, to discuss and debate topics with your classmates and your professors. You will also get early and frequent feedback on class assignments and instruction in research, writing and study skills.
