The undergraduate French major offers a complete language program which includes elementary, intermediate and advanced language, conversation, composition, business French, phonetics, as well as courses designed to provide graduate students from other departments with reading knowledge of French. Beyond the classroom, the French program offers students exciting opportunities in internships; directed and independent research experiences; an active French Club, and a French Honor Society, Pi Delta Phi.

Graduate students can pursue a variety of degree paths including a PhD in French, a PhD in French with MA en route, or an innovative, interdepartmental PhD in Film and Media Studies with a Concentration in French. Our degree programs and research networks extend out into the many departments and programs around campus with which we collaborate, and we encourage our students to take seminars, work with faculty, and pursue graduate certificates across departments.
