PROFESSOR JEANNETTE D. BRAGGER, Head
The B.A. major in French encourages students to develop fluency in the language as well as an appreciation of francophone literature and culture. The major can also help to prepare students for interdisciplinary professional careers in which a knowledge of a foreign language is useful. At present, the B.A. major in French is available either as a Language and Culture option or as a Language and Literature option.
For the B.A. degree in French, a minimum of 125 credits is required.
FRENCH MINOR: Students must take FR 201(4), 202(3); either FR 351(3) or 352(3); either FR 308(3), 310(3), or 330(3), and any two 400-level French courses, for a total of 19 credits.
