Major or Minor in French and Francophone Studies

Understand a major world language and culture

France is one of many countries where French is spoken, and where French culture plays an influential role. As a French and Francophone studies major in Clark's Department of Language, Literature and Culture, you’ll master the French language, explore the culture behind it and put it into practice. After studying in our classrooms, you’ll travel to France or Senegal for special study-abroad experiences that are core components of the major. By thinking critically and analyzing how language influences the culture across continents that share it, you’ll be prepared for a variety of careers, in fields like education and health care, after graduation.
