French Professors

Professors in the French program are committed to enriching your experience at Valpo inside and outside the classroom. 


Teaching and learning at Valpo is something we do together.  Your professors each teach the full range of courses, from beginning language courses to advanced classes for majors.  We hold regular office hours so that we can meet with you to discuss your academic work and help you make plans for the future.  And we'll also see you outside the classroom at French Club events, at rehearsals for the Drama Practicum, and at any number of other activites on campus. At Valpo you receive close, personal attention whenever you need it!
