University Majors

University of California, Santa Barbara
French B.A.

Students who major in French or complete a double major in French and another field are well equipped to pursue careers in research, teaching, international relations, the foreign service, international business, travel and tourism, communications, journalism, the arts, or any profession that draws upon a rich liberal arts education. Many of our majors are double majors in a variety of disciplines, including Business Economics, Communications, Film & Media Studies, and Global Studies. Because our undergraduate French program includes innovative approaches to cross-cultural encounters, our students are prepared to work at the intersections of national and international issues. Moreover, they develop a better awareness of cultural differences through study of the Western European heritage that informs the experience not only of metropolitan French speakers, but also of Francophone minorities within and outside France. Students can access the rich diversity of African, Caribbean, Canadian, Middle Eastern, and Asian communities that elect French as their primary or secondary language. We strongly encourage study abroad in a French-speaking country. All French majors and minors can apply to spend up to one year in France through the Education Abroad Program (EAP) or through the accredited programs of other US universities.
