The School of French and Francophone Studies, formerly the French Department, has its origin in a French-teaching staff team. The team was set up in March 1950 by Beijing Foreign Languages School, which was known later as Beijing Foreign Studies Institute (1954) and now as Beijing Foreign Studies University (since 1994).

Following its goal of cultivating French specialists with interdisciplinary knowledge base and international outlook, the School now enrolls 260 students in its bachelor degree programs, 60 in its master degree programs and 10 in its Ph.D. programs every year.  

The School is held in esteem for its first-rate teaching staff specializing in 4 disciplines, namely, linguistics, translation and interpretation, literature, and area studies.

Of the 28 teacher-researchers, 2 are professors and 12 are associate professors, and 75% of the teaching staff hold a Ph.D. degree. The staff also include 4 native francophone lecturers.

The bachelor degree program offers a set of multidisciplinary course programs (French literature, francophone literature, French civilization, international politics, francophone culture, history of France, business French, French as the language of news media, etc.), enabling students to broaden their scope of knowledge and deepen their understanding of francophone language and culture.

The academic research-oriented Master’s program offers four areas of specialization, namely, francophone literature, linguistics and didactics, translation studies, and francophone country and area studies.

The Master’s program in translation and interpretation (MTI) is completed in two years. The School offers the students professinoal training that prepares them for immediate employment in translation and interpreting.  

The doctorate degree program can be completed in 3-5 years and enables student-researchers to conduct academic inquiry pertaining to French literature, linguistic didactics and francophone area studies.

The School is home to a number of research centers, including the Center of French Studies, the Center of Swiss Studies, the Center of Quebec Studies, the Center of Francophone Belgium Studies, the Center of Sino-French Cultural Exchanges, and the Center of Francophone Studies. The School also maintains partnership programs with 20 overseas universities, including l’Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po Paris), l’Université Paris-Sorbonne, and l’Université de Genève, etc.

The francophone seminar, inaugurated by his excellency Mr. Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, Ambassador of France to China in October 2015, and anchored since by the famed political scientist Mr. Ding Yifan, plays host to senior francophone speakers (professors, researchers, journalists, entrepreneurs) and organizes lectures, forums and other events on various topics, from literature to international politics, economics, sociology and more.
