Programs

Minor in French and French Studies

For a minor in French and French Studies, students must take these three course: Fren 313, Fren 314, and one 400-level course.  In addition, minors are strongly encouraged to participate in a semester or summer-abroad program in a French-speaking country where at least two related courses might be taken and where they would gain the linguistic confidence to do well in their chosen 400-level course in the department. The alternative to studying abroad is to take one additional 400-level course in the department.

All majors (and minors where possible) are expected to live in the French House for at least one semester; application forms are available in the department. La Maison Française also serves as the major site for most Cercle Français activities, and majors and minors are likewise expected to participate in the Cercle's cultural program, just as they should come regularly to the weekly Table Française.

The department also participates in interdisciplinary programs such as International and Global Studies, Film Studies, Art History, and Women's and Gender Studies.
