International Students

We welcome doctoral students from across the world to join the Department of Modern Languages at UL!

La Francophonie en Louisiane

Students from all over the Francophone World come together at UL to explore the rich variety, hybridity, and créolisation of the global Francophonie using a variety of approaches: literary, linguistic, critical, ethnographic, cinematographic, historical, culture and folklore studies.

Venez étudier avec nous-autres !

Please note that international students must assure that previous coursework is transferred to count it toward their UL degree. A maximum of 27 hours of coursework may be transferred, and coursework hours must have been earned during the fifth year at university or beyond. Thesis hours do not count in transferrable coursework hours. International transfer credit must be approved by the department and the Graduate School. It is the student's responsibility to initiate the transfer process once admitted to the PhD program in Francophone Studies.

If you want to learn more about being admitted to the doctoral program in Francophone Studies as an international student, please consult the Graduate School’s page for International Applicant Information.
