French Language and Society Minor

Students may not declare a French major or minor during the 2022-23 academic year.

This minor provides access to French and Francophone cultures as well as insights into our own. The program focuses on language- learning as a living, functioning and fun activity, and combines the development of language skills with the discovery of new ways to see and think about different cultures. It fosters international understanding and provides knowledge and skills that are increasingly essential in our evolving global society.

The minor in French language and society is not available to French majors.
