French Program at a Glance

The French Minor and French International Minor give you the opportunity to develop language proficiency while expanding your knowledge of Francophone cultures, literature, and film.

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, our French program is being discontinued. For the 2024-25 academic year only, we will have a limited number of advanced courses in French Language & Francophone Cultures. We encourage you to contact our advisor Maria Bergstrom or the Modern Languages & Cultures director Leyre Alegre if you have questions about your French Minor, your International French Minor, or if you have questions regarding the courses.
