The degree program in French is offered through an online collaborative of various University System of Georgia (USG) institutions: including Clayton State University, the College of Coastal Georgia, and Valdosta State University. The program is offered primarily at a distance via the Georgia Online Virtual Enterprise Wide (GoView) system. Possible exceptions to fully online delivery would be face-to-face or hybrid classes offered by the consortium members or other USG institutions.

The purpose of the Bachelor of Arts in French is to produce graduates who are prepared to assume a variety of important roles in Georgia communities. The program provides a foundation of required major courses, which includes French conversation and composition, language, civilization, Francophone literature, and applied French courses for the professions. This approach allows students to develop areas of expertise that best meet the needs of their career paths, including the critical need for French-speaking professionals in business, industry, health care, law enforcement, and public service. The program provides a focus on oral communication in professional settings, with opportunities for development of specialized vocabulary, analysis of the language used in professional settings, research in professional areas, and hands-on experiences in the community or abroad. These opportunities prepare students with an understanding of cultural factors affecting communication.
