Overview

Bachelor of Arts - French

Explore French culture through literature and media while developing skills in oral communication, grammar, and composition. 

French courses at STU are designed for Anglophone, Francophone, and bilingual students of various levels of proficiency. 

In small classes, you will get to know your peers and professors as you perfect your reading, speaking, and writing skills.

French is one stream offered in the Romance Languages program. Students in Romance Languages can complete a minor, major, double major, or honors in French or Spanish and Latin American Studies. 

Opportunities to complete the Certificate in French Language Proficiency and the DELE in Spanish are also offered.

What sets STU’s French Program Apart? 

  • Small, engaging classes that emphasize personal interaction, discussion, and debate.
  • Students have the opportunity to complement their studies with a semester or year-long international exchange in France. St. Thomas partners with universities in Angers and Vendée, France, to give students the opportunity to continue their studies while fully immersing themselves in French culture.
  • Lectures and seminars are always taught by professors—not teaching assistants—which means students learn from experts in the field.
  • Extracurricular groups L’association française de St. Thomas and Le Franco-ciné de St. Thomas host French language and culture meetings and attend presentations given by high-profile French writers.

You might be interested in studying French if… 

  • You want to improve your level of proficiency or become bilingual
  • You want to learn about a different culture
  • You’re interested in international development
  • You want to become a global citizen
