The French studies minor offers small and focused classes taught by expert faculty. Students develop language proficiency and in-depth knowledge of culture through coursework that covers France and the francophone world, including Canada, North and Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Caribbean. This major is an asset to students who seek careers in education, international business, translation and interpretation, hospitality and tourism, foreign services and more.

Only courses at the 200-level or above may count towards the minor.
