As a French and Francophone major, you will improve your language skills while developing critical perspectives on seminal texts, films, comic books and paintings. 

Whether you are interested in the Enlightenment or in Caribbean literature; in crime fiction or Paris’s architecture; in New Wave cinema or the complex history and current affairs of France and the Francophone world, we have a course for you! Each semester, you will further your reading, writing, research, and critical thinking skills while achieving a higher level of proficiency in French. Students who double-major in FFS come from a wide range of academic backgrounds including Biology, Political Science, Communication, Mathematics, Peace and Justice, and English—and most of them study abroad in France for a summer or semester. With the language, communication, intercultural and technical skills you will acquire on campus and abroad, a degree in French and Francophone Studies will be highly marketable after graduation.
