Offered as a major (B.A.) and a minor

The French major and minor programs are designed to prepare students to communicate with French speakers all over the world and to develop a level of fluency that will allow them to use French in their work and for their personal enrichment. Students learn to think critically, write well, and succeed in an increasingly globalized and competitive world. The major and minor pair well with any other concentration; French is an asset in careers in international business, marketing, journalism, teaching, translation, diplomacy, government, and many other fields.
