French and Francophone Studies Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Departments and Programs

The French and Francophone Studies minor consists of 18 credit hours and is a combination of language and culture/literature courses.  The program provides students with a broad knowledge of French language, history, and culture.  Courses taught in English focus on Francophone culture and literature.  The program is designed to afford students a working knowledge of French along with cultural competence that will serve them for careers in government, social services and business, or for advanced study.  We encourage our students to take advantage of one of the many study abroad programs in Montreal, Quebec, Paris, Aix-en-Provence and other cities.

LFRE-designated Courses

LFRE courses (except LFRE 101, 0340 and 0399) fulfill the core requirements under the following categories: Literary and Philsophical Analysis, and Global Diversity.


 LLIT 0201, 0210, and 0220, may be used when topic is related to Francophone cultures and literatures as these courses are variable topics and can be approved by the Language advisor.  LLIT courses fulfill the core requirements under the following categories: Literary and Philosophical Analysis, and Global Diversity.

Electives - 6 credits

Selected from either catagories above. Other courses may count toward the minor upon approval of the Language advisor.  Additionally, students may do individual work in French within an English-language course under the rubric of Languages Across the Curriculum, when approved by the Language advisor.  With this approval, such courses may be used as substitutions within the French elective and literature components of the minor.
