The following state links from "" lead to locationally arranged indicators of "French language and literature" programs throughout the US. In some states the number is underestimated and in some, overestimated. None of the locational idicators lead to a web site, so it is impossible to know what is the focus or type of the program, look up faculty, etc.: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming. We hope to create other state pages for college French programs similar to what we have done for Tennessee.
