Overview

Students enhance their technological skills in our Language Resource Center's audio, video, and computer labs.

The French faculty is committed to student advising, and to guiding students through the options of double majors, complementary certificate programs, and elective courses. We limit our class sizes so professors can address the needs of individual learners and encourage dialogue, collaboration, openness, and critical thinking.

To complement course work, our student organizations, the French Club and the French Honor Society, sponsor events such as weekly conversation meetings and foreign film series. The French major challenges undergraduate students in a supportive environment where they can thrive and prepare themselves for a successful future.
