The Department offers a major, a minor, and an M.A. in French, a major in Italian Studies and a minor in Italian, and a major and minor in Classical Studies. Outstanding students in French are invited by the faculty to participate in our departmental honors program.

We offer a wide range of courses, reaching from introductory language classes to MA-level seminars. Students should check the course listings regularly, since offerings rotate and faculty frequently adapt their content.

The department makes available a Student Handbook that contains invaluable information regarding the majors/minors, department policies, and overall guidance structure of the department as you progress in your studies of French, Italian, and Classical Studies.
