What will I learn?

The French program, which offers MA and PhD degrees, covers all areas of French literature and culture from the middle Ages to the present. Traditional areas of study and scholarship are inflected by the faculty's interests, expertise, and research in areas that are shaping the discipline of French studies. The program, which fosters interdisciplinary research, has particular strengths in literary and cultural studies, critical theory, feminist studies, medieval studies, cinema studies, and francophone studies.

The College of Liberal Arts (CLA) prepares students to become independent and original thinkers, innovators in their chosen fields, creators of meaning in their lives and in their life’s work, and productive citizens and leaders in their communities and the world. Our broad range of studies and engagement experiences provides you with an extraordinary wealth of opportunities to expand, experiment, and explore.
