Students walking through the academic quad

Why should you study French at Goucher College?

Because you understand that studying language means more than just learning a new vocabulary - it means engaging new cultures, perspectives, and ways of thinking.

Because you want to immerse yourself in French, speaking it, reading it, writing it, thinking it, and putting it to use in the world, both at home and in the places where it is spoken every day.

Because the Center for the Study of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Goucher College connects deep understanding and exploration of language with the kind of broad, interdisciplinary study that you can only get at a liberal arts institution - and that enables you to put your learning into practice through study abroad, service-learning, and internship opportunities.

Because you will graduate from our program with a comprehensive education and abundant experience, prepared to take advantage of just about any opportunity you encounter in your career, education, and life after college.
