Minor in French Studies
The French Studies minor is a general program open to all students with an elementary knowledge of French. This minor permits students to attest to their successful completion of a formal and coherent program of study in French letters and culture which stops short of the work required for a major in French yet indicates functional competency. The French Studies minor is intended to serve several purposes depending on the exact pattern of courses drawn up by each student and his or her adviser. Thus, the minor may provide grounding for further study in the discipline; it may fulfill graduate school requirements for study in other disciplines; it may recognize progress in the language made through study abroad; it may provide a practical tool for use in many work environments; or it may form one element of a broadly based liberal arts general education.
