The French section offers beginning and intermediate courses in the French Language (FRN 101,102,203,204) and upper division courses at the 300 hundred level in advanced grammar, composition and conversation. Both oral and written skills are emphasized. In addition we offer culture, literature and film courses as well as advanced special topic courses covering economic and political issues.

Our staff is made up of qualified professors in Teaching Methodology, Literature, Film and Literary theory. Students receive a comprehensive education ranging from basic conversational skills to advanced reasoned critical thinking.

Francophonie, specifically in the African diaspora and parts of Canada, is an important  cultural phenomenon in the world today.  We thus offer courses designed to expose the students to the Francophone World and its many diverse cultures and literatures.
