For more than 170 years, the Queen's University community has been more than a collection of bright minds – Queen’s has attracted people with an ambitious spirit. Queen's University is a public research university located in Kingston, Ontario. Founded on 16 October 1841 via a royal charter issued by Queen Victoria, the university predates the founding of Canada by 26 years. The university is organized into ten undergraduate, graduate and professional faculties and schools. The Department of French Studies offers a Bachelor and Graduate French Studies program. Courses available are diverse and tailored to the students needs. Teachers and an engaging program will guide students with their learning. Students who participate in this program desire to improve proficiency in French, familiarize oneself with French language literature and culture, study the French language or undertake further research at the master's or doctorate level.
Queen’s University offers a French Summer Camp in Kingston and is an initiative of the Department of French Studies at Queen’s University since the summer of 2014. The camp program provides an opportunity for children ages 4 to 10 to learn and experience the French language and culture in a fun, interactive, recreational setting.
Queen’s French Camp is a student run program that aims to teach French in an engaging camp style, outside the bounds of the classroom, by incorporating creative programming for campers of all abilities in French. The weekly sessions in July and August seek to inspire interest in the French Canadian identity while incorporating the Ontario curriculum standards. Campers are encouraged, but never required to, communicate in the French language, ultimately ensuring an inclusive and comfortable environment.
