French

Bonjour!  Come study with our fabulous faculty, including Claude Malary (above), who returned to his native country of Haiti with groups of SMC students to assist in post-earthquake relief.  See related story here.

French is an official language in 29 countries, and France (with some 4,800 companies) is the third largest foreign employer in the US. French is also the language of diplomacy, cooking, fashion, travel, and visual arts. Speaking French opens up endless opportunities, and our program is easy to combine with any other major. You can add a French minor even if you have never studied French before!

Learn French in small classes with lots of interaction.  We will help you get comfortable with the language then assist when you choose classes as part of our semester abroad program in France.  You might even dabble in Haitian Creole if you'd like!
