Established in 1957, the French Major was the first to grant a BA degree in French in South Central and South China. During 1950s to 1960s, Liang Zongdai, the distinguished poet and translator, was once a member of the faculty. An MA program in French Language and Literature was set up in 1999, including two directions: French Language and Literature, and French Language and Culture.
The Department of French has established a student exchange program with Jean Moulin University – Lyon 3, and with Sciences Po Lilie, providing 15 undergraduates with opportunities to study in France for two semesters each year.
