Parlez-vous Français?

More than 220 million people in the world speak French. It is an official language of the United Nations, the European Union, NATO, UNESCO and international courts. The most widely learned foreign language worldwide after English, French is spoken in multiple continents – from North America to Africa to Asia – and is a central offering in SFA’s modern languages program. 

With classes ranging from introductory and intermediate language to civilization, politics and the arts, our program is a great fit for both beginning and advanced French speakers. You can even join one of our study abroad trips to get firsthand knowledge of the people, language and cultures of the Francophone world.  

A versatile degree 

France is the fifth largest economy in the world and the third largest destination for foreign investment. Proficiency in French opens business and service possibilities not only in France but also in Africa, Canada and the Caribbean. Many industries today seek candidates who are fluent in both English and French. From oil and gas companies to computer cloud services, the ability to speak French offers a great advantage in many occupations, including: 

  • Customer service 
  • Education 
  • Law 
  • Diplomacy 
  • Hospitality 
  • Interpretation and translation services 
  • Sales 
  • International business 

More than simply a language 

SFA’s modern languages program doesn’t just teach you the language – it allows you to experience the culture. Our students have worked and studied in France, Quebec, Haiti and multiple countries in Africa. Whether you’re attending a French movie festival or an on-campus lecture by a French artist, we provide cultural lessons that prepare you for a successful career.
