  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
Greeley, CO, United States
One of the great advantages of choosing a French major at UNC is the sense of community with students and faculty. Working in small classes, you’ll gain proficiency in French under the personal guidance and mentorship of dedicated, accessible instructors. 


You’ll also find that our French program is about more than learning the language: It’s about developing cultural competency, dealing with global diversity, and talking about current events and how they relate to contemporary issues in the French speaking world. There are many fun and culturally enriching learning opportunities too, including a French film series, immersion weekends (complete with French cuisine) in the nearby resort town of Estes Park, a weekly conversation hour in French, and French Club activities. You can even embark on a life-changing adventure studying abroad at a French university.

Develop pedagogical and organizational skills that will position you for success as a French teacher. When you complete the French teaching major, you’ll be qualified for State of Colorado licensure to teach French in secondary schools and for graduate study in French.
