The study of French contributes to the education of a student in many ways:
It stimulates and directs the acquisition of a national and international understanding by developing knowledge of the civilization, literature and language of one or more of the modern nations, which is a part of a cultural and liberal education.
It develops accuracy and precision in the use of language as an instrument for the comprehension and communication of ideas.
It offers training in the reading knowledge of foreign languages essential to advanced study in most fields of learning.
It is of practical value in diplomatic service, business and industry or foreign trade.
It prepares the student to qualify for secondary or elementary school instruction or, after graduate study, for instruction on the college level in French.
