The French Major and Co-Major

Albright College provides you opportunities to acquire in-depth competencies in French and the cultures of the French-speaking world. Through coursework, service learning, study abroad, internships, honors theses, and collaborative research with our faculty, you’ll learn to appreciate cultural differences, to question, and to analyze. You’ll solve problems on a daily basis. You’ll interact with native speakers who share their cultural and linguistic expertise inside and outside the classroom. Learning a new world language is a transformative experience, and we’re here to guide you as your begin your journey.
