French Designation

The Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree with a designation in French prepares you to complete a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in French at a four-year university. In this program, you will explore Francophone language and cultures. In an increasingly global economy, speaking another language and understanding the culture of those communities is a vital skill. French is one of the six official languages of the United Nations and is spoken in over 55 countries.

Courses in French are taught as immersion and focus on high levels of interaction from day one in order to give you the greatest opportunity to learn and use the language. With an A.A. in French, you will reach a level that allows you to interact with cultural competence in academic and career-related situations, or for your own enjoyment, all in the French language. This program introduces you to the study of French and includes courses that are common to all four-year institutions in Colorado.

Career paths for French language degree holders include professions in journalism, diplomacy, international relations, NGO/humanitarianism, business, trade and investment. Careers typically require a bachelor’s degree.

Degree names may vary according to the institution. Please see your academic advisor for more information.
