The French and Francophone Studies Department offers courses in language and literature. By following a carefully designed program, French and Francophone students learn to communicate; to think and write critically; and to appreciate the literary, social, and cultural traditions of the Francophone world. The department is committed to the concept of foreign study and strongly encourages students to participate in overseas programs in France, Africa, Quebec, or the French Caribbean islands.
