Department of French

The French Department helps students develop a broad and varied acquaintance with French and Francophone cultures and literature.

We encourage you to apply to live in the French Language Living Learning Community, home to students passionate about French, interested in forming bonds with other Francophones and dedicated to expanding and promoting their French language proficiency and cultural understanding of French-speaking nations. Residents range in background from beginners to native speakers and from first-year students to seniors returning from study abroad. They commit to daily efforts to speak French and, in collaboration with their French-speaking Community Advisor and Language Assistant, they are encouraged to plan and participate in a multitude of activities both in and outside their residence hall to promote community, cultural enrichment, and language practice.
