A total of twenty (20) credits as follows:
- French 202*.
- French 301.
- French 323, 324 or 335.
- Additional elective four-credit courses at the 300-400 level.
Minors are strongly encouraged to spend at least one term of their junior year in a French or Francophone university. Departmentally pre-approved courses taken there, beyond French 202, will count as elective courses in the minor. French 305 counts as one elective course in the French minor.
*Students who place into the 300-level are neither required nor permitted to take French 202 for credit toward the major or minor. Students placed at the 300-level are still required to take a total of 40 credits for the major and 20 credits for the minor. Students who choose to take appropriate 300-400 level courses offered by the French section in English may count only one course taught in English toward the major or minor.
