About The Department

The Department of French Studies offers about 30 sections of French language, literature and culture. Linguistic skills are built from elementary through advanced levels in grammar, phonetics and composition. Students can use state-of-the-art technology to assist in their studies. Course work in the languages is linked to studies in culture and literature, as students and faculty engage with work—renowned, rediscovered or newly discovered—from France and Francophone cultures in Canada, Africa and the Caribbean.
