If any of the above made you stop and think, then invest in a Bachelor’s and/or Master’s Degree programme(s) in Linguistics offered by the French Language Faculty, one of the “oldies” of the former Maurice Thorez Institute for Foreign Languages (now MSLU).

We have a proven track record of training highly qualified specialists in the French language and culture who now pursue a wide range of careers in education and business, in politics and the public sector, in journalism and advertising. As a library and information professional you will be able to enter employment in many sectors of the economy – in business and industry, in educational institutions and various professional bodies as well as the creative industries.

We take pride in the fact that we offer our students a unique approach to learning and teaching French as a foreign language. What is its essence? Our approach is designed to provide a comprehensive, fundamental and systemic vision of the language and culture through history to modernity. This is exactly the reason why our graduates are prepared to handle linguistic research and teaching in today’s changing environment and to embrace new educational technologies, being capable of undertaking life-long learning.

By choosing the French Language Faculty as a starting point for your career as a linguist and teacher, you acquire not just professional competences but also friends, and future colleagues, as Moscow’s teachers and lovers of the French language and culture are, predictably, part of the world’s close-knit Francophone community.
