About This Program
The French minor gives students a sufficient command of the language, both written and spoken. Students gain knowledge of French literature and culture, are able to travel in France as more than just an interested tourist, and have a foundation from which to pursue their interest in French independently for personal enrichment and professional advancement.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
