French and Francophone Studies

Studying French at Carolina provides students with the opportunity to acquire a working command of the French language (reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension), as well as an introduction to French and Francophone literatures and cultures. To experience the culture and language of French and the Francophone world, students can participate in a wide choice of study abroad programs and internships, including the UNC study abroad program in Montpellier. The French major provides students with a more thorough command of the language, as well as a comprehensive knowledge of French literature, culture, and civilization. French majors are also trained in research methodology in French, Francophone, and European Studies. French majors have gone on to careers in education, international business, law, journalism, publishing, social work, health professions (ie: medical and nursing school), as well as graduate study in French.
