French Minor

Nothing looks better on your resume than a minor in a foreign language: French, Italian, Japanese, or Spanish. It gives you the competitive edge you will need in the international market. It tells your future employer that you have taken that extra step in learning to communicate with other cultures.

A French minor requires five courses in French or, as an alternative, four courses in French and an MC course with modified assignments, with permission of the instructor and after you have completed level 214 of the language.

The following requirements below are intended for students beginning fall 2024.

To declare your minor, please speak to your academic advisor for assistance.

*This course is taught in English, and it may be used toward the French minor if you have permission from the instructor and have taken FR 214 since specific assignments will have to be done in the French language. Only one of these four courses can be used for the minor. Please notify your Professor on the first day of class if you intend to have the course counted toward the minor.
