The French minor consists of a minimum of 6 courses (18 semester credit hours) at the 3200-level in French. Ideally students should take 2 courses from each distribution group:
- Language: Six credits from FREN 3268 or 3269, 3250, 3251, 3257.
- French and Francophone Culture: Six credits from FREN 3210, 3211, 3215 or 3216, 3217, 3218, 3224, 3226, 3267.
- French Literary Studies: Six credits from FREN 3261W and/or 3262W, 3223, 3220, 3221, 3222, 3231, 3234, 3235, 3270W, 3272, 3280.
Students may, however, substitute up to 2 courses from any distribution group and use them for any other distribution group and still have them count towards a minor
Education abroad in our Paris program is highly recommended (students studying in Paris may earn up to nine credits towards the French Minor).
Any of the Minor courses may be replaced by the appropriate FREN 3293 from Paris.
Students must demonstrate proficiency in French at a level equivalent to FREN 1164.
The minor is offered by the Literatures, Cultures and Languages Department.
