Parisian Coat of Arms: "She is tossed by the waves, but does not drown."
CWU World Languages Faculty and Students Stand in Strength and Friendship with France

The French program at CWU offers a major and a minor in French. Classes are small, focused, and taught by expert faculty. Students develop language proficiency and in-depth knowledge of culture through coursework that covers France and the Francophone world, including Canada, North and Subsaharan Africa, and the Caribbean. A solid background in French language and culture is an asset to students who seek post-grad careers in education, international business, translating and interpreting, hospitality and tourism, foreign service, and more.
