Our curriculum

From medieval classics to contemporary films, our undergraduate courses offer a broad range of topics to deepen your understanding of the cultures of Italy, France, and French-speaking regions of the world, both in English and in French or Italian. We look at literature and cultural production in a broad context, considering comparisons with and influences on contemporary culture in the U.S. Exploring film, literature, history, linguistic study, and cultural phenomena in French or Italian presents an immersive experience that leads you to greater fluency and language comprehension.
