French & French Studies

Sewanee: The University of the South

Welcome to the Francophone world in Sewanee! We are a friendly department of five, and we love French so much that we would welcome any chance to show you our enthusiasm for all things French-related: literature, culture, music, movies, food, wine, and more! There are opportunities to study in France. On campus, you may practice your French in our classes, at the weekly Table Française (lunch on Mondays at McClurg), at the lovely Maison Française where students reside and where the Department sponsors Francophone programs, at the SUT for occasional French movies, and in the hallways of Gailor Hall where you will hear us chattering away in the "langue de Molière."
