The Eiffel Tower

We offer undergraduate courses in French language, literature and culture.

The language courses make use of CU’s ALTEC language lab to provide maximum flexibility in language learning, with rich audio-visual content. Courses cover spoken and written language, composition, conversation, and Business French.

Culture courses focus on current events, differences between the US and France, and the culture of the larger Francophone world.

Literature courses cover topics ranging from the Middle Ages to the twenty-first-century novel. We also offer study abroad programs in a number of French-speaking locations.

Students can choose either a minor or a major in French, as well as a five year BA/MA joint degree program.

There is also a new joint Certificate Program with Engineering.
