Political and economic realities today ensure that no education can be considered adequate without the ability to understand the perspective of cultures other than our own. The French perspective affords students three distinct features: a tradition of inquiry into the meaning, structure and practice of Language; a history of thought, literature and fine arts which has shaped the Western tradition; and a rich diversity of African, North American and Asian cultures which still choose French as a primary or secondary mode of expression.

With the goal of a global education in mind, the French Program at Marist works closely with the Office of International Education and the Modern Languages faculty to integrate French studies into a comprehensive program of international exposure through internships, interdisciplinary projects and the use of information technology.
