The Program of Concentration in French is designed to provide the student with a level of fluency applicable to a variety of professional situations and to give insight into the thought patterns of French and Francophone cultures.

Major requirements include oral and written control of the French language, familiarity with the major movements in French and Francophone literatures, and a good understanding of the histories and culture of France and the Francophone world.
