Did you know that French is the primary language of 70 million people? That France is the world’s fifth largest economy? That a French novelist won the 2008 Nobel Prize for Literature? That a French film won the 2012 Academy Award for Best Picture?
In keeping with all that’s worth knowing about French, we offer a program of courses designed to develop high proficiency in French language skills and to inculcate a knowledge and appreciation of the culture and literature of French-speaking countries.

Outside the classroom, students have the opportunity to hone their language skills and cultural understanding by living in the French House, by dining at the French tables, and by participating in activities of the department and the French House.
