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.
