You may obtain a minor in French by completing 18 credit hours of coursework starting with FRE 101. If you begin at a higher level, you will still need to take 6 courses all together.

We encourage you to participate in a study abroad program, and you may transfer in up to 9 credits (50%) toward the minor.

At the moment, we are offering FRE 101, 102, 201 and 202 both semesters and both summer sessions, for your convenience, and to expedite completion of the minor. Beyond the basic language and culture courses, we offer six 300 level varied courses to choose from:

  • FRE 302 Phonetics
  • FRE 303 Francophone Civilization
  • FRE 304 Francophone Literature
  • FRE 305 Advanced Writing and Stylistics
  • FRE 315 Oral Proficiency
  • FRE 350 French Cinema

For our more advanced students in the minor, we also offer FRE 401, French for Business, and FRE 440, Writing French Children's Stories, both available in online distance education format. Please, consult with the French minor advisor before registering in courses.
