The History/French double major is an interdisciplinary program designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of France and its history. The program combines the offerings of the history and French departments to form a coherent curriculum that joins the rigorous historical study of France or related Francophone countries with the in-depth study of literature and culture, including mastery of the language. This program provides excellent preparation for graduate studies in history, French, and global, cultural, or international studies, for other professional study, or for employment in related areas.
When you complete the program you will acquire the following: competence in the French language; general knowledge of French literature and culture and of the tools used in its study; knowledge of French and Francophone history and the methods of historical study; and more advanced knowledge of the French or Francophone areas you choose to investigate as an undergraduate senior.
