The French and Francophone Studies Department helps you acquire knowledge of the language, literature, and cultures of France and French-speaking countries. Through beginning, intermediate, and advanced language courses, you develop the skills to read, write, speak, and understand French. Courses on the literature and cultures of French-speaking communities in Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, and North America instill in students an appreciation of Francophone cultures in their diversity.
In keeping with the broader liberal arts mission of the college, the department seeks to train students in the skills of both critical analysis and written and oral argument. We strongly encourage all students to study in a French-speaking country. You have the opportunity to study in the college's own year-long and semester Davidson in France program located in Tours, France.
There are many Web resources available where you can hone your linguistic skills, including the following.
