Requirements for a Minor in French and Francophone Studies

A total of twenty (20) credits as follows:

  1. French 201 and 202*.
  2. French 301.
  3. French 320, 321, 322, 323, 324, or 335.
  4. Additional elective four-credit courses at the 300-400 level.

Minors are strongly encouraged to study in a French or Francophone university. Courses taken abroad should be pre-approved by the section head to count towards the minor.

Students who choose to take appropriate 300-400 level courses offered by the French section in English may count only one such course toward the minor, as long as the course has a French component.

*French 201 may count towards the minor. Students whose placement is above the 201 level are neither required nor allowed to take courses numbering below their placement level for credit toward the minor. Students placing above 201 are still required to take 20 credits for the minor.
