MINOR IN FRENCH AND FRANCOPHONE STUDIES

The French and Francophone Studies Minor offers students the opportunity to explore the broad interdisciplinary field of the language and cultures of the French-speaking world. The Minor, designed to complement the students' areas of specialization, will allow them to develop the linguistic and cultural proficiency necessary to function in regions where French is spoken. In addition to obtaining a greater mastery of all language skills (reading, writing, comprehension, speaking), students will also acquire and apply terminology specific to their field. Moreover, this program will help students to understand the geopolitical significance of the Francophone world. Thus, the Minor will not only develop students' analytical skills, but also teach them to recognize, negotiate, and appreciate cultural difference.
