French & Francophone Studies has three learning outcomes: 1) an understanding and command of the linguistic structures of the French language that enable students to use it correctly and fluently in speech and in writing; 2) an awareness and appreciation of the diversity of French and Francophone cultures; 3) a familiarity with and ability to critically analyze the literary production of the French and Francophone world.
French & Francophone Studies majors are prepared for graduate and professional studies, and career possibilities including law, business, education, government, and international relations and diplomacy. (French is one of the official languages of the United Nations!) The French & Francophone Studies discipline encourages students to participate in study abroad programs.
