Requirements for a Minor in French

A total of twenty (20) credits as follows:

  1. French 202*.
  2. French 301.
  3. French 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. Departmentally pre-approved courses taken there, beyond French 202, will count as elective courses in 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 (in the French section) toward the minor, as long as the course has a French component.

*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.
