Bienvenue au Département de Langues Étrangères de NC State University

There are many reasons to study French. You might want to live in Paris and work in the fashion industry, or travel the country, exploring the wonders of French culture. Earning a major or minor in French could also open doors to careers where intercultural communication is essential. Whether you want to go into education, marketing, tourism, medicine, law, or any other field, a second language can give you a significant advantage.

At NC State, majoring or minoring in French combines the best of both worlds. You’ll get practical training in writing, conversation and reading – along with exposure to culture in the form of literature, cinema, art and music.

 

The language of civilization, culture, and possibly your future.

  

Academics

As a French major, you have two options when it comes to your degree: French Language and Literature (LAF) gives you a broad education in language and culture, or the French Language and Literature with the Teacher Education Option (LTF) offers a customized track for future teachers.

Minoring in French is a smart way to make your degree even more marketable. No matter what your major is – from computer science to veterinary medicine – knowing how to speak a second language can set you apart from everyone else. Learn more >>

 

Life Outside the Classroom

With a major as rich and vibrant as French, you can’t help but have fun while earning your degree. After all, if you’re learning to speak a new language, you may as well find some interesting people to speak it with, right? NC State offers plenty of clubs, societies and activities to give you that extra joie de vivre.

Study Abroad

You’ve never truly experienced French culture until you’ve studied abroad – and this may be one of the best opportunities you’ll get. The French program at NC State sends you to Paris and Lille, where you’ll see the sights, speak the language and absorb the lifestyle. Learn more >>
