The Major in French offers students the opportunity to master skills of language acquisition and textual analysis while developing multicultural awareness of the diversity inherent in the Francophone world. Our program prepares students to think critically, and allows them to gain a broad appreciation and deep understanding of French and Francophone literatures and cultures. Our curriculum includes courses in literature from the Middle Ages until the present day, as well as interdisciplinary courses that look at cultural and historical movements. Most French majors take advantage of the study abroad opportunities offered in conjunction with the Office for International Programs, and participate in extracurricular activities such as French Club or language tutoring and coaching.
