What can you do with a French Honours?


Honestly, does any language sound cooler, more romantic, or more sophisticated than French? Okay, maybe Italian. But beyond sounding cool, French is also a great college major. Moreover, French is the third most used language on the internet ahead of Spanish.

Undergraduate programs in French are primarily designed to ensure that you gain a substantial degree of competence in speaking and writing the language (advanced courses are often conducted in French), and to study the culture, literature, and history of the Francophone world. Be prepared to spend a lot of time studying the nuts and bolts of grammar and translation.

The ability to speak French is a great advantage on the international job market because it opens doors to French companies like L’Oréal, Renault, Auchan, Chanel, Cartier and many more.

What can you do with a French Honours besides teach?

A lot. A bilingual French speaking professional is earning a salary of Rs 9.83 lakhs per annum in India. French speakers are in demand in banking and finance, foreign market analysis, diplomacy, and hotel management, just to name a few fields. While many will tell you that the language of business is English, relationships are forged through common experiences and respect, and in a common language in the non-English speaking world. Even the most basic efforts to understand and communicate in the language of the host are greatly appreciated, and often form the basis for a business deal to be struck.

In case you were wondering, France boasts the world's fourth largest economy, and its gross domestic product (GDP) growth is one of the highest among European economies.

The French Honours also serves to prepare students for graduate and professional skills. Our majors regularly go on to receive their MBA or PhD’s in various fields.
