As a French major at St. Kate's, you will learn about French language, literature and civilization by taking enriching programs taught in French at all levels. St. Kate's faculty members have a deep love for and appreciation of the French language and culture, which they are eager to share with you.
St. Kate's French majors are a close-knit group who work together in their studies. French majors and those who love the language have many opportunities to hone their communication skills and share their appreciation for French language and culture. For example, the department organizes French Club events on and off campus. St. Kate's alumnae often visit campus to give presentations or join students as auditors in classes. A section of the core curriculum course Global Search for Justice is periodically offered in French. Outstanding students may be invited to join Pi Delta Phi, the national French honor society.
You will also enjoy the benefit of the departmental teaching assistants, who are always natives of France. In addition, the language lab offers access to computer assistant language learning technologies, including CD-ROMs, audio CDs and movies to help you master the language and learn about French culture. Faculty also direct you to a wealth of cultural information now available on the Internet. While we will encourage you to study in a French-speaking country through one of the many exciting possibilities available to you at St. Kate's, we also offer suggestions for internships using French at organizations in the Twin Cities.
The St. Kate's Global Studies staff will help you learn about the many foreign study opportunities available to you and pick the best option for your needs. More than 50 semester, year-long programs, January options and summer programs are available. These programs are academically sound and provide strong support services and opportunities for you to immerse yourself in the culture of the country you visit.
