Students who have previously taken French must complete the Modern Foreign Language placement test to determine entry level. Students must complete French coursework through, at minimum, FRE-202 (or equivalent by placement test) to be eligible for this minor.
All students must complete 15 units of coursework regardless of placement test results. Students who complete FRE-202 in fewer than 15 credits have the option to take up to 3 credits in Humanities & Fine Arts courses (English, Philosophy & Religious Studies, Theatre & Speech Arts, Music, or Art). ENG-100 and FYS-101 may not be used to fulfill minor requirements.
Students may elect to minor in French (Humanities & Fine Arts PEAK) or in French Foundations (Professional Studies & Enhancements PEAK), but not both.
Students wishing to teach French at the secondary level should consult with the Education Department for specific certification requirements.
