      French

From Paris to Tahiti, from Quebec, Canada to New Orleans and the Caribbean, we are learning the language that circles the globe - French. In addition to that most romantic of languages, we celebrate the food and fashion, the art and music, the achievements and history of the world's fifth largest economy and fourth largest exporter, France. Whether you want to fulfill language requirements for an associate's or bachelor's degree, explore business or professional applications, prepare for travel or simply indulge a fascination with France and French, from beginning (French 121) to advanced levels (French 122 and 123), SCC has a French program to help you achieve your goals.
