In addition to beginning and intermediate courses which fulfill the Language and Culture core requirement, the French Program offers a major and a minor in French, as well as several possibilities for co-majors. Please see the French Major and Minor page for details.
We strongly encourage students to participate in one of the many international opportunities available to them.
All French section faculty members are committed to making foreign language studies a stimulating and rewarding part of the curriculum. In addition to a low student-faculty ratio (15-1), our students have access to free tutoring with knowledgeable and experienced native speakers as well as individualized academic counseling.
Language placement examinations are used to assess the level of students’ abilities in French and to assist them in finding the course that is most appropriate for their level of proficiency. The language placement examination is administered by the Modern and Classical Languages Department. Students can take the French placement examination only once.
