In our global world, knowledge of another language is increasingly relevant lending speakers a competitive edge on the job market, and expanding their reach. French courses prepare students for a liberal arts education, for a major in French and for being global citizens. French courses help students transfer, further their career, continue their personal development and interact with the French-speaking world. Students who complete the French Program will gain insights into language and the language learning process, allowing them to continue the study of languages. Upon completion of the French Program, students will be able to interpret native spoken French and effectively communicate with native speakers in a variety of contexts and formats. Students will also be able to read and interpret written material in French of at least six paragraphs and write a four-paragraph essay in French, clearly and accurately, in a variety of contexts and formats.
