French philosophy, thought and literature, which play a central role in European culture, greatly impact cultures from all over the world, including Japan. Furthermore, influences of French culture can be seen in many aspects of Japanese daily life, such as fashion, food, interior design, etc.
To conduct in-depth research on the fundamental thoughts and artistic expressions behind them enables us to review our own selves, and to comparatively review Japanese culture. It also should become food for students to gain a different perspective, as well as a flexible thought pattern and sensitivity. The Department has prepared a learning environment in which classes are comprise only a few students so that both beginners and advanced learners of French may take part. This learning environment enables students to cultivate their practical speaking and communication abilities, and to pursue further studies by selecting one of three areas: French literature, language and culture. Interesting exercises and special lectures are given by both Japanese and French faculty. The curriculum opens a path for pursuing overseas study in France or for becoming instructors of the French language.
