All courses in our curriculum integrate intensive language study with culturally rich content that engages students with French and Francophone cultures. Classroom learning is enhanced by digital technology as well as by opportunities to study abroad. All classes in the major curriculum, including beginning levels, are taught in French, and courses are scaffolded to build both linguistic and intercultural skills while students develop as critical thinkers. As a French major, you will expand your knowledge of French and Francophone cultures in interdisciplinary courses that integrate a variety of cultural perspectives from literature, cinema, history, the news media, and music while simultaneously developing your ability to read, speak, write, and understand the French language.
French majors are required to study abroad for at least one semester in a program that has been approved by the university and the department. The study abroad semester may be completed at any point in the trajectory. Additional credits from abroad may be applied to general studies requirements, another major or a minor as appropriate, or used as elective credit for graduation.
