French Concentration

Why Mason?

Mason’s advantageous location less than 15 miles outside of Washington, D.C. offers you the opportunity to engage in a host of internships and research projects to connect your classroom experience to the world beyond the campus.

The proximity to Washington enables students to reach out to Francophone communities and programs, such as those at the Maison Française and the Alliance Française. They can take advantage of programming at embassies from French-speaking countries that are only found in the nation’s capital.
