French Studies Program
The French Studies Program prepares students to thrive as globally competent citizens through an in-depth encounter with French and Francophone cultures and literatures. Majors develop language proficiency and communication skills as they study literatures, films, and cultures of the French-speaking world. The field of French Studies can be applied in a wide variety of career choices. See any of the French Studies faculty for more details on this exciting new major!
Our goal is for students to comprehend (via listening and reading), to speak and to write the target language in an advanced U.S. academic setting, so that they can meet the learning objectives and become critical thinkers and informed citizens of the world.
