French and French Studies
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, and more! We are especially proud of our new in-house opportunity for our students to study in Paris. On campus, you may practice your French in our classes, at the weekly Table Française (lunch on Mondays at McClurg Dining Hall, at the lovely Maison Française where students reside and where the Department sponsors Francophone programs, at the Sewanee Union Theater for occasional French movies, and in the hallways of Gailor Hall where you will hear us chattering away in the "langue de Molière."
The major in French and French Studies is an interdisciplinary program which examines the language, literature, history, culture, and society of France and of other Francophone countries. The minimum requirement for a major in French and French Studies is nine full courses beyond French 203, as prescribed in the College's Catalog.
