Welcome to the Department of French and Italian at the University of Minnesota.
The Department offers undergraduate and graduate courses on the language, literature, and culture of France, the broader francophone world, and Italy. At all levels, our courses are designed to provide linguistic skills and to enhance the kind of critical thinking needed to explore other cultures, other historical periods, and to discover what makes them meaningful today.
