For art lovers, aspiring chefs and those who wish to see the world, the French program offers preparation in language, literature, culture, film, and opportunities for study abroad. Our undergraduate program features a rich variety of courses for students interested in studying French in relationship to philosophy and politics as well as to the sciences and the arts.
Our graduate program in French Language & Literature prepares graduates for the teaching and research demands of post-secondary education. Graduate studies encompass a combination of literary theory, literature, and cultural studies across periods, genres, and geographies, as well as carefully designed instructional methods and theory courses at introductory and advanced levels.
Our summer, semester and year-long study abroad programs in Nice, Toulouse, Paris, and Dakar enable students to deepen their understanding and appreciation of French culture by taking courses in the French university system, living with French families, shadowing doctors in French hospitals, holding internships in French businesses, and traveling extensively. Such experiences are the perfect preparation for careers in international business, international medicine, international law, and international relations or diplomacy.
