The French program explores the diverse literatures, identities, and cultures of the French-speaking world. All courses are taught in French, provide intensive work in oral and written expression, and are approached from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students may meet prestigious artists, intellectuals, and government figures hosted by the department. The weekly French Table, student-run French House, and interactions with the French Assistant offer students additional opportunities to deepen their linguistic skills and cultural knowledge.
