French and Francophone Studies

The French and Francophone Studies Department offers courses in French language and literature. By following a carefully designed program, French and Francophone Studies students learn to communicate; to think and write critically; and to appreciate the literary, social, and cultural traditions of the francophone world. The department is committed to study abroad and strongly encourages students to participate in overseas programs in Dijon, Nantes and Paris.
