French Minor

(CIP= 18.0901)

French is a truly global language, the official or second language in over 40 countries worldwide and an important tool in business and diplomacy. Our faculty offer a large variety of courses including literature and culture across genres, centuries, and geographical regions. Our faculty, a good mix of French and American scholars, is attentive and our students are close-knit. The placement record for our students is impressive, including graduates who continue to obtain advanced degrees, teachers in public and private schools including in IB programs, or even abroad in institutions such as the École Normale Supérieure in France; others apply their French to international law, business, politics, federal government jobs and to writing novels recognized by The New York Times.
