In today's rapidly changing world, there is intense demand for women and men who understand other cultures and can communicate in more languages than their own. They know that a new language is an open door into very different ways of living and understanding the world.


Explore the incredible diversity of the Francophone world, from Paris to Quebec to Haiti, through literature, film and culture. Study French for the professions, and use it in business-related fields. Live the language through service learning.
