Traditionally, the teaching of French in South African universities has been focused on the study of language and French and / or Francophone literature. However, in the post-apartheid socio-political and educational context in which the integration of theory and practice is stressed, departments of French have begun to question their role and examine their objectives. How can foreign languages like French play a significant role so as to contribute to the transformation of tertiary education and to the socio-economic development of the country? This article will focus on the creation of a project-based module incorporating French language teaching and learning in the field of journalism with the aim of answering that need. The success of this pilot project led to the restructuring of the French curriculum at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University thus responding to transformation and development needs.
