HOD's Message

To possess another language is to possess a second soul - Charlemagne

Welcome to the Department of French. Learning a Foreign Language is akin to a journey of discovery. The Department of French has always given its students the joy of discovering French, the most rich, melodious and analytical language in the world. The students along with learning the language are given an insight into the wonders of French Literature, History of France and French Civilization. The commitment, focus and enthusiasm of the faculty help the students in achieving nothing short of excellence. We instill values of social responsibility, moral uprightness and confidence in our students. As students of a Foreign Language and French Literature, our students are proud of their culture and civilization as they learn to appreciate another culture which is very different from their own. This brings about a holistic development in our students and it contributes largely to their intelligence. The two students who study their fourth semester in Lille, France set a very good example of this holistic development because they try to compete with fourteen different nationalities. We try to hone both the creative and analytical skills of our students through a series of programs conducted in Loyola College as well encouraging our students to participate in various competitions conducted by the French Department of various city colleges.

All our students find employment soon after their studies. Our students work as school teachers, college teachers, English language assistants in France, Language specialists in various companies like TCS, WIPRO, INFOSYS, CTS, IBM, SOCIETE GENERALE, WORLD BANK etc.
