French Program


Please note: We are not able to accept new French major/minor students at this time. Please contact our Department Chair about the latest update.

The purpose of the French major is to enable students to attain an advanced level of competency in speaking, listening, reading and writing, and to provide them with a comprehensive knowledge of the historic and contemporary culture and institutions of France and the francophone world.

The French language is studied not as an end in itself, but as a vehicle for students' broader and more informed participation in their chosen fields. Courses taken abroad in the CSU International Program may be counted toward the major or minor or as an elective credit. Programs are available in Aix-en-Provence, Paris and Québec.
