The French and Francophone Studies Major and Minor at Davidson

At Davidson, French and Francophone Studies majors and minors acquire knowledge of the language, literature, and cultures of France and the French-speaking countries of Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, North America, the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. 

We aim for more than just knowledge. We aim to strengthen our students' critical and analytical thinking skills, as well as their ability to form written and oral arguments in the process, and to do so in French; and through this synthesis of knowledge and understanding, we strive to give our students the fluent world view and skills necessary to thrive in a global economy.
