Course offerings in the Department of French Studies reflect our belief that a nation’s language, literature, and culture are inseparable, and that French literature is a privileged archive of Francophone cultures. The study of other cultures in their respective languages, and the investigation of the similarities and differences within and among nations, offer invaluable insight into our own language and culture.
