The University of Massachusetts Amherst offers a fully funded master’s in French and Francophone Studies. The MA in French and Francophone Studies is a two-year, 30-credit program. The program offers financial aid in the form of Teaching Assistantships that cover the full four-semester length of both the MA and MAT programs. No separate application is required. Teaching Assistants receive a full tuition credit as well as a living stipend, which makes the MA and MAT programs financially accessible to students of virtually all backgrounds. In addition, the Assistantship covers 95% of the cost of the graduate student health insurance premium.
