French Studies

The French Program at the University of Hawai‘i offers a wide range of courses in French and francophone literature, translation, cultural studies, films, language, and linguistics.

Our unique geographical situation has allowed us to develop privileged connections with the French-speaking Pacific. We offer, every year, generous scholarships to travel and study in France or anywhere French is spoken in the world.

Our faculty is committed to undergraduate teaching at the highest intellectual level through a commitment to research that informs and enhances our teaching at every level.

French majors have pursued successful careers in teaching, research, fashion, government service, international affairs, and many more. Our purpose is to help you realize who you are and will become in this global world. We also offer a minor in French.
