French & Italian

French, Italian, and Francophone studies in the Department of French and Italian ensure that our students succeed in an interconnected world. We offer comprehensive undergraduate major programs with three tracks: French, French and Italian, Italian. Students may also minor in French or in Italian. We offer rigorous courses of study leading to the M.A. and the Ph.D. in French. Course work in the Department of French and Italian gives students a valuable and useful linguistic tool; offers cultural training for students specializing in other fields; prepares prospective language teachers in French and Italian; and trains majors in the literature, culture, and civilization of France, Italy, and the parts of the world where French is a major language of communication, including Québec and large parts of the Caribbean, Africa, and Southeast Asia. The Department welcomes qualified students from all disciplines, regardless of major.

 


Last night we held our annual Honors Ceremony, celebrating the achievements of our undergraduate students in French and Italian! Thanks to all for coming, and helping make our evening a success - thanks to Sarah Greenwood for our program and certificates, and to Cynthia Willingham and our backroom crew for all the wrapping of gifts ... there were a lot of prizes, and congratulations to all. See you next year!
