We aim to support students in their work to become flexible thinkers  who are active social participants in French and Francophone cultures.  In MLCS students have the advantage of studying in a multidisciplinary, regionally diverse environment.  Scholars engage with; Québec, the Caribbean, Louisiana, France; with topics ranging from discourse analysis, comics and images, film, culture, translation practice and theory and history.  The diversity in our midst; of linguistic, translation, cultural and literary expertise; marks this Area, indeed the department as a whole, as unique.  We offer our students the opportunity gain hands-on experience through Community-Service Learning (CSL) courses or through publishing reviews and texts on our Francopains blog.

Our French area encourages study abroad, immersive experiences, and hands-on learning.
