French Studies


Have you always wanted to learn French?

Well now you can! Find out what you’ve been missing!


French is a Romance Language and represents not only an important means of communication in the modern world but also offers the key to the discovery of a rich literary and aesthetic tradition.  A course in French at university level has two main aims: to give students the ability to read, write and speak the language they are studying and secondly, to introduce them to the culture of France and Francophone African countries.  At Rhodes University, French is a three-year major subject which may be studied for degree curricula in the Faculty of Humanities.  One, or in some cases two, courses in French are allowed as credits for the Faculty of Commerce, Science and Law.
