In-state tuition for french studies at private schools is, on average, Infinity times more spendy than their public peers.

With just 34 schools having programs for french studies there could be limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other french studies undergraduates, consider institutions in North Carolina which have the most undergraduates admitted to french studies annually. less precisely, the best region to pursue french studies is in the Southeast region with Emory University, University of North Florida, and Wake Forest University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the best conference to study french studies is the University Athletic Association with Emory University representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best university for french studies is Brown University. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.
