Our department provides a robust and creative program on cultures and literature of France and the French-speaking world. In addition to the regular curriculum, we offer stimulating cultural activities, continual opportunities to improve linguistic aptitudes, and sustained intellectual challenge through our program in Martinique, as well as unique summer research projects. Our majors develop a superior knowledge of language and cultures. Some graduates continue their education in highly selective graduate programs, while others are successfully engaged in exciting roles around the world.
Each year the French Department welcomes a French assistant from Paris' Sorbonne University as a cultural ambassador.
