Bachelor of Arts in French


French majors complete 30 hours at the 3000 and 4000 levels, with a minimum of 15 hours at the 4000 level. The 30 hours include Advanced French (Fr 3023), Approaches to the Analysis of French Literary Texts (Fr 3033), and a minimum of 6 hours in Literary and Cultural Studies (Fr 4113, Fr 4123, and/or Fr 4143). French Education majors alone take Methods of Teaching Languages (Lang 4003). At least 24 of the 30 hours must be taken in courses taught in French. Up to 6 hours, including Lang 4003, may be taken in related courses designated Lang (Language) or CpLt (Comparative Literature), with prior approval of the major advisor. Other appropriate courses may be approved by special permission of the major advisor and department chair.

Students should consult with their Department Advisor or the College Advising Office for specific course requirements for their major field of study.
