The French and Francophone Studies program at the University of Tennessee has been growing rapidly over the last few years. We offer a wide variety of courses that cover the culture, literature, and history of the Francophone world. We especially encourage our students to study abroad, and offer a number of scholarship opportunities to ease the financial burden of travel, including through the Mossman Endowment (up to $6,000 each to students with a major or minor in French) and the Normandy Scholars Program ($3,000 for a mini-term trip to all students selected for the Program--credit available for minors and majors in French).
A degree in French and Francophone Studies, or in French and Francophone Studies with a concentration in Language and World Business, opens the door to many careers, including teaching, international business, translation, and government service. We encourage you to explore our website and to call or email any questions that you might have concerning the study of French and Francophone language, literature, theater, cinema, and culture at the University of Tennessee.
