Students may obtain a minor in French by completing a minimum of 15 hours beyond French 2100.

Most likely the courses for the minor will be the following: 

  • 2160 Intermediate Composition and Conversation (2100)
  • 3160 Advanced Composition and Conversation (2160)
  • 3410 Critical Thinking (3160)
  • 3420 Introduction to French Culture (3160 and 3410)
  • 3430 Masterpieces of French Literature (3160 and 3410)

Students may take one course taught in English for credit towards the French minor. 

Students beginning at a level higher than 2160 due to placement testing must still complete the minimum of 15 hours in order to receive the major. A minimum of 9 hours must be taken in residence.

Additionally, course work must be completed with a grade in the C range or higher in each of the required courses and students must maintain a 2.0 GPA in the minor.

It is highly recommended that students, if at all possible, study for a summer, a semester, or a full year in a French-speaking country.
