About

The mission of the French/Francophone program at The City University of New York is to prepare our students to navigate successfully in French in a global, linguistic and cultural context, in France and in a French-speaking country. 

Overview

First, the French Program at The City University of New York strives to teach students to speak, read, and write a language other than English and to use that language to apprehend and respond to the cultures appertaining to these languages. Our students are trained to identify, discuss, and analyze the foundations of the French and Francophone literatures and to attain a deeper understanding of different literary periods, their most representative works and their authors.

Additionally, the program strives to make the students understand the historical development of one or more non-US societies, the historical evolution of the French language, its culture, and its society and establish a connection with today's global societies. The French Program also aims to equip the students with the grammatical, linguistic, and cultural knowledge required for their professional careers through a variety of courses. 

Program Goals

  • Obtain general knowledge of main French literature periods and movements through a given historical period, its most representative masterpieces and their authors.
  • Obtain general knowledge of key authors and works of literature from the Caribbean, North African and Sub-Saharan Francophone countries.
