First Year at a Glance

As a first year Language student, you will focus on one French grammar course and one French oral course as a foundation for upper year studies in writing strategy, literature, and linguistics. Of the remaining three credits required in first year, we recommend that one be within the Department of Languages other than French.

Completing the required first year courses opens the door to unique second, third, and fourth year courses including among others:

  • Language in Context
  • France: Culture and Civilization
  • Stylistics and Composition
  • Women’s Writing in France
  • Children’s Literature in French
