French, B.A.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Minors and Other Academic Programs


Courses in French are designed to aid in the preparation of students for effective participation as citizens of the world community. The program is structured to develop skill in the use of the French language, to afford a broad knowledge of French literature and civilization, and to nurture discriminating taste in that literature and the related arts.

Major students must complete a minimum of 34 credits beyond the 100-level courses. Certification to teach French is possible for students who also complete applicable requirements of the School of Education . Education majors planning to teach French are required to spend at least one academic semester or a total of 15 weeks abroad studying the language for which they seek licensure. Although we suggest spending the entire time in one extended visit, students may combine visits to reach the total as long as one visit is a minimum of eight weeks long. The program and projected plan of study should be approved by the student’s academic advisor in the Department of Foreign Languages  prior to enrolling in the  program.

Minimum Credits Required: 34
