majors and Programs
The French major combines the experience of living and studying in a foreign country with that of the residential liberal arts college. French majors may choose either fall or spring semester, usually in their junior year, to take a full course of study (14-16 units) at an approved university in a region where French is the native language. Course offerings vary from year to year and from university to university, but always include language, literature, and civilization and culture classes.
Close student-faculty relationships, small class sizes, excellent language materials, and flexibility in the curriculum all contribute to meet students' needs in studying French.
