Overview

Whether you’re a student, an alum, or a visitor, I want to welcome you to our homepage.  Mississippi State’s vision statement includes the claim, “Mississippi State University will be a leading public research university that is globally aware and involved.”  CMLL is proud of the fact that no other department at the university lives into this vision to the same degree as we do.  To put it quite simply: we bring the world to you!  (And through our study abroad programs, we can even bring you to the world!). The Foreign Language - French program is offered at Mississippi State University.

I hope you’ll find all the information on our website inspiring and useful. The resources here exist for only one reason: for you to use them.  The people profiled here are eager to help you in any way they can.  (I usually refer to this department as “the main headquarters of the world’s nicest people.”)  If you want more detailed information, if you have suggestions for our website, or if you want to learn more about each of the languages and subjects we offer, please feel free to contact me – I’ll even give you a tour if you’re on campus.
