As a Union College French and Francophone studies major, you will interact with a talented pool of professors who know your name (in two languages!) and be part of an exciting academic program that encompasses language, culture and literature courses.
Be prepared for many lively hours reading, writing, speaking and thinking in French inside and beyond the classroom (c’est vrai!) through a variety of enriching activities. These include French Club events, a weekly French Table where students lunch and learn together, and guest presentations throughout the academic year by renowned speakers, poets, artists and performers.
To further improve your linguistic skills and cultural proficiency, you may participate in a term abroad in Rennes, France. Students on this term live with a host family and take four courses at the University of Rennes, one of which is taught by the Union faculty member leading the program. There are also opportunities to become immersed in French-speaking cultures in two visual arts-focused mini-terms in Paris, and during a summer break mini-term in Senegal.
