The French and Francophone Studies program from John Carroll University is designed to help students acquire knowledge of the languages, literatures, and cultures of France and Francophone countries. 


Course Overview:

Through beginning, intermediate, and advanced language courses, students develop the skills to read, write, speak and understand French. Courses on the literatures and cultures of French-speaking communities in France and in other countries of Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America, as well as the French possessions in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, instill an appreciation of Francophone cultures in their diversity. 

Extra-curricular projects promote active engagement in cultural and linguistic exchanges. In keeping with the broader liberal arts mission of John Carroll University, the French section seeks to train students in the skills of both critical analysis and written and oral argument, skills that they can use in graduate schools or in their future professional and personal lives. All French and Francophone Studies students are also strongly encouraged to study in a French-speaking country.

Language study cultivates the skills valued by 21st century employers. According to results from recent surveys sponsored by the Association of American Colleges and Universities:

  • Nearly all employers (96%) agree that “all college students should have experiences that teach them how to solve problems with people whose views are different from their own.”
  • More than three-quarters (78%) of employers agree that “all college students should gain intercultural skills and an understanding of societies and countries outside the United States.”
  • Employers are increasingly globally connected and seek employees with intercultural skills as well as global knowledge and experience.
