French Student Profile: Robert

"Being an International Relations major, it is very beneficial for me to have experience in a foreign language, and the French program here is perfect for me. Also, as a member of the Army ROTC program, I believe that it is very important to have experience with foreign language and culture; it can help put you in the frame of mind to be ready to learn about and understand cultures other than ours. The French program has given me those tools."

International Relations major and minors in French and Military Science

More from Robert:
"There are more opportunities to speak in French with native speakers than I have time to take advantage of, and each time I do, I always learn something and develop my conversation skills on a level that really reinforces what I've learned in the classroom."
