Building upon a foundation of proficiency in the French language, concentrators in French Studies explore the culture, history, and literature of Francophone civilizations. Students select from a variety of courses in language, historical periods, genres, themes, major writers, film, and civilization. Students interested in living in a French environment often reserve rooms in the coed dormitory (Machado House) at 87 Prospect Street. A Resident Coordinator in French maintains a planned program of activities centered around French conversation, movies, lectures, and cooking. Study abroad opportunities are available in Paris, Lyon and other francophone countries. Most students are required to take a placement exam. See departmental website for details.
