French offers a complete program of language, application of language to other fields, literature and culture that prepares students for careers in many fields. Student options in French include a major, joint majors and a minor. Majors are prepared to teach and to undertake graduate studies and research in the language and/or to use the language in linked careers such as business. The joint majors combine French with Spanish (Romance Languages) and Romance Languages with International Studies. In cooperation with the School of Education, the program offers courses that lead to primary and secondary teaching certification in French.
Students in the major reach an advanced level of proficiency in their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. They receive an in-depth vision of French culture from the beginning to contemporary French or Francophone culture in France, Africa, Asia and the Americas.
The program incorporates and highly recommends French studies in a French-speaking country. The program collaborates with universities and institutions in French-speaking countries. Supporting studies in history, art history and linguistics as well as in other languages and literature are also advisable.
