With a major, a minor, and several thematic sequences, the Department allows undergraduates to pursue an interest in French language, cultures, and literature along several possible tracks. Many students also take advantage of the Department's summer program in Dijon, France.

Aside from a rich curriculum centered on France, the Department also offers courses on French-speaking cultures from other parts of the world, especially in north and west Africa and the Caribbean.

The Department sponsors many non-curricular ways of exploring the French-speaking world as well. We encourage students to discover our film and lecture series, language tables, and the cultural activities organized by our undergraduate clubs. Those interested in an in-depth experience should consider living in the French Language Corridor in Thomson Hall.

Students with questions about undergraduate programs in French should contact Dr. Mark McKinney, the Chief Departmental Advisor.
