Diploma Awardees

Our Professional French Program was launched in the fall of 2018, with courses designed to help French students incorporate their French skills into a variety of future workplaces and enhance their career prospects. Students who attend these courses are given the opportunity to graduate with two degrees at once, combining their Bachelor of Arts or Master’s degree with a degree in Professional French (DFP, Diplôme de Français Professionnel), certified by the Paris Ile-de-France Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI). The two business-oriented courses in the program provide extensive training for the Paris Chamber of Commerce examinations. Since the beginning of the program, the vast majority of our candidates have successfully taken the DFP exams.
