About French & Francophone Studies at UMass Amherst

Our strong tradition of interdisciplinary curriculum innovation and our flexible array of program requirements permit and encourage our students to combine their programs of study with majors, minors, or certificate programs in other fields, such as Political Science, Art History, and Anthropology.

We strongly recommend our sponsored program in Paris to all our sophomore- and junior-level students interested in improving their command of the French language, and in enriching their knowledge of French culture. They may elect to participate for a semester or for the entire academic year.

Among our faculty are scholars recognized nationally and internationally as distinguished in their respective fields, enabling the program to uphold its commitment to excellence in teaching and research at both the undergraduate and the graduate levels.
