Minor in French Language, Literature and Culture

The French minor consists of 7 courses, or 21 credits:

  •     FREN 3100W (Introduction to French Literature)
  •     FREN 3210 (Medieval and Early Modern French Literature)
  •     FREN 3220 (Modern French Literature). Note: in some cases, advanced literature courses may be used to substitute for FREN 3210 and FREN 3220 with the consent of your minor advisor.
  •     Students must take an additional four courses selected from among French courses numbered 2005 and above, of which at least two must be at the 3000- and 4000- level.
  • 3000-level courses are designed to introduce students to literary analysis and major trends in French literary history. 4000-level courses are advanced in-depth explorations of specific topics and build upon prior coursework. It is strongly recommended that students take 3000-level courses before continuing on to the 4000 level.
