Welcome to the French Program

French at Midwestern is a small, intimate program that specializes in accommodating students with varying degrees of language proficiency and with different interests. Most classes and seminars have limited enrollments so that students receive close, individual attention in and out of class. 

The French program offers a minor and an area of concentration. The minor  requires twelve hours (four courses) of advanced work beyond the initial fourteen hours (four courses) of language instruction, and the area of concentration requires eighteen hours (six courses) of advanced work. 

The French department is a member of Pi Delta Phi, the French National Honor Society. We are chapter XI ETA.

Students can earn six credit hours in a four-week immersion program in Tours, France, from late May to late June.

A two-thousand dollar scholarship is awarded annually to a French minor.

The French Club is open to anyone interested in francophone cultures.
