As the language of diplomacy from the 17th until the mid-20th century, French has played a significant role on the world stage. Today it remains the lingua franca of many Western and African countries, and is the official language in close to thirty. 

Why study the French program at Gordon College?

At Gordon, you can take courses in linguistics alongside your French studies.

Gordon’s proximity to Canada means that you can immerse yourself in the French language without having to book a flight—weekend excursions to the historic cities of Montréal or Québec are not out of reach.
