Department of French
The Department of French conducts research on different aspects related to communication and language learning and trains experts in language and communication.
The study and research activities of the Department of French focus on the use of modern language and the linguistic expertise required in a multilingual world where communication technology creates new ways of interaction. Our research ranges from language and communication in digital environments to the learning and processing of foreign languages, from topics related to machine translation to those related to French-speaking literature. Our educational activities focus on the French language and its use in the different parts of the francophone world, in diverse social and cultural contexts. The training provided by our Department also aims to equip our students with the excellent professional skills needed by a language expert.
