Overview

Key Features

Knowing another language is key to understanding social, historical, and political events in their contexts. Learning another language also leads to new friendships and opens diverse and often unique career opportunities.

At Wake Forest University, the French Studies curriculum is supported by the rich and varied scholarship of our faculty, with courses and research on sociolinguistics, cinema, West African and Caribbean literature, and French crime stories, to name just a few. Classes are taught in French from the beginning levels, and the faculty’s commitment to communicative learning fosters the development of student proficiency. We use multimedia and technology that bring communities to the classroom. French Studies majors often have the opportunity to present at conferences, to collaborate on faculty projects, or to explore an area of interest to them through an Honors project.
