Learning a language unlocks the door to new friends and adventures in places you never would have visited without it. Understanding a language and culture other than your own develops a global comprehension and appreciation of other people’s way of life.

French is the language not only of France but many other nations. More than 90 million people speak French as their mother tongue while millions more speak it as a second language.

Earning a degree in French prepares graduates to become teachers, diplomats, linguists, or international business professionals.
To complete a major in French at Erskine, students spend at least one semester studying abroad to gain first-hand experience with the language and culture.

Blending well into a balanced liberal arts education, Erskine College’s modern language programs emphasize language mastery, exploration of cultures, and literary analysis. A minor in French is also available.
