Department of French Language and Literature

The Department of French Language and Literature at Dr. Ali Shariati Faculty of Letters and Humanities and Humanities established the Bachelor’s program in 1956 with the aim of training graduates who are equipped with the general knowledge and acceptable proficiency in the language and culture of France. These graduates will be able to play a major role in creating constructive communications and interactions between Iran and French speaking countries and will also be able to exchange scientific, literary and educational ideas and achievements. Such graduates can teach French at schools and language institutes. Preparing human resources who are fluent in French language for occupations that demand such skills is another aim of the Department of French Language and Literature. The staff of this department also attempt to provide educational possibilities for those who are interested to learn another foreign language besides English at the academic level.
