French is one of 11 international languages offered at Saddleback College. Students interested in the French program will have the opportunity to learn the language and the history, politics, literature, culture, and arts of French speaking countries. It also fosters an understanding of the interrelation of language and human nature, appreciation of other ways of life, different systems of belief, and different ways of constructing knowledge, and perhaps most importantly, a better understanding of the world in which they live.
Students develop cognitive and creative thinking skills and acquire increased understanding of another culture. Whatever your career path, a major or double major in a language can be a wise and practical choice.
