The Department of World Languages and Literatures at Sacramento State offers undergraduate majors in Spanish and French. Our undergraduate programs are designed to provide students the opportunity to learn about languages, literatures, and cultures, to broaden cultural understanding, increase language proficiency, and enable them to communicate successfully both in a pluralistic American society and abroad.

French - Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

A Bachelor of Arts in French takes 36 units (upper division units). Start taking French courses this semester and the major will be finished in less time than you think! 

Check with the French Program Advisors to make sure you are taking the appropriate sequence of courses with Dr. Kevin Elstob: Faculty page, or e-mail
