In Louisiana, we live life with a French accent!
Louisiana is an amazing place to study French because of our rich French, Creole,
and Cajun heritage. As a Loyola student, you study language, art, music, poetry, film, and other subjects in New Orleans and abroad. You have the possibility of studying at thirty-two different universities in France as well as universities in Morocco and Martinique.
The French curriculum prepares you for many opportunities:
- Scholarships offered by France, Belgium, and Canada through CODOFIL (Council for the Development of French in Louisiana).
- Teaching assistantships in France through the French government.
- Resources at archives such as the Historic Louisiana Collection.
- The culture of a city that proudly shows its French heritage in its food, architecture, and music.
You will complete 31 credit hours which combine French language courses, a selection of French electives in culture, literature, and film classes, and a French capstone course. Your coursework may vary slightly according to your level, and there is the option to complete a thesis if you are interested.
