This non-credit diploma program is open to adults at all levels of proficiency. It features five levels, each level taking a full academic year (fall and spring term) to complete. As participants can enter the program at any level, based on an initial level assessment, the program can be completed in one to five years.

The mandate of this program is to provide members of the community with educational programs to achieve an advanced command of the French language and a detailed knowledge of the Francophone culture in Canada and of Francophone cultures in the world.
