SUMMARY

A degree in French Language and Literature is a valuable choice and ordinarily a requisite first step for students coveting to begin a career as a french poet, a french linguistics professor, or a french translator. In fact, french language and literature is a very rare degree ranking as the 135th most popular degree. Last academic year, there were 2,400 french language and literature graduates. In-state tuition for french language and literature at private universities is, on average, 4.6 times more expensive than their public rivals.

There are 561 schools which offer french language and literature. This number of institutions is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other french language and literature majors, consider institutions in New York which have the most undergrads admitted to french language and literature annually. More generally, the best region to major in french language and literature is in the Mid East region with New York University, Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus, and University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the top conference to major in french language and literature is the Big Ten Conference with University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Ohio State University-Main Campus, and University of Wisconsin-Madison representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best university for french language and literature is Harvard University, and here you can find our comprehensive list for the best colleges.

The 'best' school might not actually be the best school for every student. There are lots more factors to weigh when choosing institution. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would affect your decision on where to go to university. Here at Authority, we evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which french language and literature college is home to the top campus, the winner is Harvard University. If you are very interested in which college is home to the finest campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more in order to compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our well researched list for the universities with the best student life here and, from that list, our pick for the school with the best student life for french language and literature is Cornell University. Are you curious why? Keep reading to learn more about our top choices. Many of our conclusions will probably shock you.

If price is a major factor in your decisions, you might be cautious about Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York appears to be our most expensive university for french language and literature, at least for out of state attendance. That being said, we have an entire page for the most expensive schools that could put the expense of Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. You may also be interested to know that french language and literature is the 22nd most expensive degree in America, with an average expense of $53,500. On a broader scale, the most costly state for french language and literature in the country is District of Columbia at George Washington University and Georgetown University, the main colleges in the state, of $54,453 and $55,440. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region of the U.S. for french language and literature is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Amherst College with a cost of $57,640, Tufts University with a cost of $57,324, and Williams College with a cost of $56,970.

Our cheapest region for french language and literature is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Boise State University with a cost of $22,452, Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, and University of Utah with a cost of $26,017. More optimistically, the most affordable university for french language and literature is University of Maryland-College Park. Authority.org's comprehensive list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state students can expect to pay around $11,100 for a degree in french language and literature. The cost grows dramatically to an average of $29,000 for an out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the school constituting the best value for french language and literature: Duke University. Through this link you can find our comprehensive list on the colleges we see as being the best value overall. Do know, this list is predicated on being an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for french language and literature majors can vary, but two years after graduation graduates will regularly make around $50,200. While there is a lot of variation in pay; highest paid earners can experience pay up to $82,000. Even right out of college, the lowest end positions within the french language and literature field earn $30,000, which could be worse. The top earning grads from french language and literature attended Duke University and if you want to find the schools with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The all-around diversity of french language and literature ranks subpar, falling in the 49th percentile of majors nationally. The school with the highest composite diversity for french language and literature is New York University and here you can find our comprehensive list of the colleges which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the French Language and Literature major ranks only within the 17th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, in the 45th percentile. White collegians compose the largest proportion at 63% of those studying french language and literature. Additionally, 75% of undergraduates seeking a french language and literature major are women.

We have insufficient professors data for french language and literature to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. If we consider data other than simply rankings it becomes clear that the university with the best instructors for french language and literature is Johns Hopkins University. One will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as many of the finest examples of professors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest college to get into for french language and literature is Harvard University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have an extensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you understand that looking at higher education through a lens only derived from superlatives could cause issues. We hope you read our other pages on individual colleges and explore some of our helpful background articles on beneficial things to think about as you progress with your college search.
