About

  • French literary and artistic tradition is of great historical significance. In recent decades, French critical thought has occupied a highly influential position in the theoretical discourse of the humanities and social sciences. The instructional programs of the department offer students the opportunity to achieve a well-rounded education and to pursue advanced research in a challenging intellectual environment with superior research facilities.
  • Each year, thousands of students enroll in undergraduate courses in French in order to pursue the study of language and literature as well as other related areas of French studies, including history, culture, politics, institutions, business, the arts, and film. The graduate program trains students in French and Francophone literature, culture, and thought as well as in literary analysis and critical theory.
  • The Department of French & Francophone Studies offers undergraduate programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree, including a joint-degree in French and Linguistics. Students may also graduate with a French Minor or pursue double majors. The graduate program leads to the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in French and Francophone Studies.
