The French Department is pleased to announce that in response the cancellation of so many other summer activities (especially the Study Abroad Summer Program in Lyon), we will be offering more courses than originally planned in summer 2020

We surveyed  students to see if there would be interest in offering additional French classes online.  Thanks so much to the many students who replied to our survey. Although we could not accommodate every request, and we cannot offer each course in each of the three summer sessions ,their replies allowed us to identify the course levels most needed, and to make a strong case to have these courses approved, staffed,  and scheduled in record time. 

All courses will offered on line and via Zoom.

In addition to many offerings at the 1000-2000 level, we are offering several courses at the 3000+4000 level, all of which count for major/minor credit:

  •  FREN 3031  Finding Your Voice In French
  • FREN 3585/ FREN 4585  A la carte: Gastronomy in Contemporary France  (Click here for poster)
