Chatting outside the classroom
Attending meetings of the French Table is an important facet of the major, as it helps develop your conversational skills. Attending a French language immersion weekend at Björklunden is another great way to practice your proficiency.
The Chandler Senior Experience
Your Senior Experience consists of a one-term senior seminar in which possible research topics are defined and outlined, culminating in a written thesis and an oral, in-class presentation of your work. Other types of research projects and interdisciplinary capstones in French may meet the requirement, which you can discuss with the department chair and your advisor.
Recent Senior Experiences include:
- L’Éducation musicale aux écoles primaires : un outil de la propagande pendant la Première et Deuxième Guerre Mondiales
- La Continuation de la Mission Civilisatrice : Les ONG aux frontières du néocolonialisme
- Débinariser le français : la subversion du genre normatif comme façon de s’exprimer
- Colette, Minne et Bourdieu : l’Ingénue Libertine et le Féminisme de la Belle-Époque
