About the Program
The faculty and staff of the French section of the School of Languages and Cultures at Purdue University offer a full range of undergraduate and graduate courses in language, literature, linguistics, second language acquisition, pedagogy, and film. We also have many options for study abroad programs in France, from Spring Break, to full academic year, or semester-long programs. Undergraduates may opt to major or minor in French. Graduate students pursue either a Master’s degree and/or a Ph.D. Our graduate students receive teaching assistantships. We are a vibrant, international team with diverse research, teaching, and social interests.

The Teaching Track prepares students to teach French in grades 5-12. Students will take courses in the School of Languages and Cultures and in the College of Education, will do student teaching in a local school, and upon successful completion of the degree program, will receive the teaching licensure required to teach in Indiana public schools.
This program meets state and national licensure standards and is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and the State of Indiana, State Board of Education. Admission to and successful completion of the Teacher Education Program (TEP) are required.
Degree in 3
The College of Liberal Arts offers the opportunity for students to complete their degree in three years. Degree in 3 majors allow students to enter the work force or graduate school a year earlier than traditional plans of study while also providing a cost-effective way to complete an undergraduate degree.
Students can complete the three-year option with or without AP credit by adding summer sessions to traditional coursework in Fall and Spring semesters. Degree in 3 offers a great combination of cost-savings and the opportunity to accelerate your future and achieve your goals.
