Customize Your Future

Typically, French concentration majors have more than one major or a complement of minors. Why? Because it allows you to craft an educational experience focused on the career you want. Our students have chosen double-majors or minors in pre-health, education, art, anthropology, communication studies, business, and criminal justice, just to give a few examples.

Our students have gone on to graduate or professional school or employment in the fields of business, education, government, industry, international relations, law, public health, medicine, hotel and restaurant management, and publishing.
