French Minor Curriculum

The minor in French is a program consisting of six, three-credit courses in which students pursue studies in French beyond the beginning and intermediate levels. In consultation with departmental advisors, students combine their work with other academic disciplines and develop particular strengths and interests in French literature, language, or culture. Students pursuing the Minor in French are strongly encouraged to study abroad.
