Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures II

Minor in French

Program Description

The French minor is designed for students who wish to prepare for a career in teaching or for one in which a background in French language and culture is essential. By completing the Minor, the student is prepared to pursue a career where French is required or can be helpful for the job. Students with a French minor can teach lower French classes in High school if they teach another language. It can be helpful also for students who are seeking jobs at companies like Air France, top hotels or international organizations where some French language level is required.
