About the Bachelor of Arts in French

A degree in French provides IU South Bend students with the tools to become a true international citizen in a multi-cultural, multi-lingual global community. The French Program promotes proficiency in the French language, knowledge of French and Francophone cultures and literatures, and the students' active engagement in cultural and linguistic exchanges.

Academic Advising
