Why French?

Whether you are studying French to fulfill your foreign language requirement, as preparation for study abroad in a French-speaking country, or for a major/minor in French, the French program of the Department of World Languages & Cultures offers you both curricular and extracurricular means to meet your goals. Through this broad range of offerings and opportunities, our program encourages students to work not only toward proficiency in the French language, but to learn about the culture, history, literature, politics, and geography of the French-speaking world.

The focus of the French Studies program is on practical, culture-based proficiency in the use of French. Course content is both literary and more broadly cultural, drawing on fields such as history, philosophy, politics, economics, and the arts.
