French and Francophone Studies
Applied French Option
Description of the major
The B.A. major in French and Francophone Studies encourages students to develop fluency in the language as well as an appreciation of Francophone literature and culture. The major can also help students prepare for interdisciplinary professional careers in which knowledge of a foreign language is useful. The B.S. degree is designed to allow students to combine fluency in French with other academic disciplines.
The Applied French option develops basic skills in French (speaking, understanding, reading, writing) as well as a basic knowledge of French literature and culture. It also provides a concentration in a professional area in which a command of French can be particularly relevant or useful.
