The French & Francophone Studies curriculum is research-driven. All our classes include research projects of different kinds. We offer several opportunities specifically for you to explore a topic of your choice:
- Students in our study abroad programs conduct on-site research projects.
- The required capstone senior seminar, FREN 450, includes a research project.
- You could spend a year conducting your own research project through the Honors Program.
- You can spend a semester working on your own project by taking FREN 480, Independent Study.
French and Francophone Studies students have a chance to present their research during the annual Fête de la Recherche, our student research conference.
Our McCormack-Reboussin fellowships in French & Francophone Studies support students conducting summer research projects. The Charles Center coordinates many scholarships and grants to fund student research.
