Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature

As a Minor

As globalization proliferates, instruction in francophone language and literature is an ever more important advantage in business, teaching, translation, and other professional careers. French course offerings are of two types: language and literature conducted in the foreign language as well as courses in literature conducted in English. The courses taught in a foreign language are designed to develop students' command of modern languages for use orally and in writing, both in everyday experience and in the realm of literature and ideas.

Students choosing to minor in French should select two courses at the 3000-level or above plus a capstone course at the 4000 level to fulfill requirements for the Tier III Minor.
