From Medieval France to the Maghreb, the French and Francophone Studies faculty at Illinois Wesleyan University represent a wide range of research and teaching interests. The interdisciplinary nature of teaching at IWU allows contributions not only to courses in French language, literature, and culture at all levels of instruction, but also to the Humanities "World of Ideas" core courses, and the Western European Studies and African Studies of the International Studies program. Our faculty also participate in courses in the "Literature and Culture" rubric and Women's Studies courses, as well as annual offerings in the university first-year student writing program, the Gateway Colloquia.

"The French and Francophone Studies professors at Illinois Wesleyan University are professional scholars who care deeply about their students’ success. They are always charismatic in the classroom and continuously available to help their students outside the classroom. They are the perfect example of teachers who show their students that with hard work anything is possible."
