The French minor gives students a solid foundation in the fundamentals of French language, literature and culture. The minor has a particular emphasis on accuracy in oral and written expression so that students are well equipped to handle advanced French language study anywhere in the world.
Students completing a minor in French must complete 24 credit hours in the following courses:
- No more than 6 credit hours at the 1000 level and no more than 6 transfer credits may be used to fulfill the minimum requirement of the minor in French.
- French 2100 and 2101
- French 3100 or French 3101
- 15 additional credit hours in French
Education students: Students planning on completing a bachelor of education degree should note that having the equivalent of a minor in French represents a few additional courses to what would be required for a focus area; however, having a minor represents a more profound level of French. Primary/elementary education students are also encouraged to consider the new education program that allows students to pursue an undergraduate degree in a discipline before doing a one-year education degree.
