UMKC French

This is not the official webpage of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at UMKC. You can find that here: https://cas.umkc.edu/foreignlanguages/

Here you will find activities of the French section, information about upcoming courses, etc. It is not edited as often as we would like, but it does give an idea of the kinds of things we do in French at UMKC.
