The major in French and Francophone Studies allows students to engage in intensive study of the French language, and the literatures, cultures and the arts of the French-speaking world, including parts of Africa, North America, the Caribbean, and the Asia-Pacific region. The program is dedicated to preparing students for spending time in a Francophone country and to supporting engagement with a foreign culture.
