About this course

The department operates a systematic and diverse curriculum that enables students to achieve these goals. General education courses offered by the department include courses in elementary French and general introductions to French literature and society that provide students with a broad knowledge of France.

Recently the department has actively sought to include Francophone culture and literature in the curriculum.
