The Undergraduate Major in French
The Major in French is intended for students with good knowledge of French who are interested in developing near-native fluency and literacy while learning more about French and Francophone culture. The requirements for the major are flexible, allowing students to choose their courses according to their interests; many students who major in French are double majors. Students who intend to major are encouraged to consider a stay in France, preferably a Junior Year Abroad, though a semester or a summer program are viable options too (see Study Abroad).
The Undergraduate Minor in French
The goal of the minor in French is to give students a solid grounding and good fluency in the French language and to provide a basic familiarity with important aspects of French and francophone culture and society. Together these accomplishments will enable students to pursue their interests in French language and in countries where French is used.
