It may seem surprising that training future Canadian Armed Forces officers at the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) includes teaching them about the French language, great literature in French, and Francophone culture in general. Yet we, as professors in the Department of French, Literature, and Culture at RMC, are committed to training the leaders of tomorrow by teaching the language, as well as by studying many literary and artistic works that open their minds to the world and its complexity. The knowledge transmitted in our department is part of our collective effort to train CAF officers who will be responsible, inspire confidence in their day-to-day work and important decisions, and possess open minds, cultural intelligence and strong analytical skills.
