Program Description

Students interested in acquiring proficiency in French can enroll in language courses from beginning to advanced levels. In addition, students may select from among the following programs: a major in language studies, a major in literature with an emphasis in French literature, or a major in global economics.

Lower-division courses 1-6 are taught entirely in French and prepare students for advanced study either on campus or abroad. They are designed to help students develop proficiency in aural comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing skills, and to introduce student to French and Francophone cultures.
