French

Program Type: Minor
Program Level: Undergraduate
Department: Minors

The study of world languages, literatures, and cultures lies at the very center of the humanities. World language majors not only acquire skills in reading, writing and speaking many languages, but they also explore and develop an appreciation for the literature, history, and broader cultures of lands and peoples around the globe. The French program at USC Upstate offers students the opportunity to study the language and literature of the French-speaking world. 

Our alumni are working in multinational companies, global non-profit organizations, as well as universities and schools around the world. 60 French corporations are located in the Charlotte, NC, area, with another two dozen in our Upstate region of South Carolina. See the French American Chamber of Commerce of the Southeast Job Listings and the French American Chamber of Commerce of the Carolinas Calendar of Events for a small sample of careers that open up to graduates with French language skills.
