A major in French consists of the completion of 11 units at or above the 201 level in this language. A major must be enrolled in at least one one-unit course in French during the senior year. Majors must complete one approved period of study abroad. Appropriate periods of study abroad include an Intensive Learning/May Term travel course in which French is an intensively-taught language, or a summer, semester, or year abroad with a department-approved program such as ISEP, or another university-sponsored program abroad.
Majors must take:
- French 201
- French 202
- Or two elective units at or above the 300 level
One speaking-intensive course from the following:
- French 301
- French 303
- Special studies topics courses designated as speaking-intensive
One writing-intensive course from the following:
- French 302
- Special-studies topics courses designated as writing-intensive
One civilization and culture-intensive course from the following:
- French 311
- French 312
- French 315
- Special-studies topics courses designated as cultural-intensive
And a total of six French electives to be selected from the courses listed above or from any of the other 300 and 400 level French courses or Linguistics 320. However, no more than two courses taught in English may be applied toward the major. Students who study abroad should select, in consultation with their advisors, appropriate substitutes for these requirements. The linguistics course taught in English (Linguistics 320) may be counted towards the major.
