Minors in French Studies

There are two minors in French Studies. The minor in French Language, Sociolinguistics, and Translation and the minor in French Language, Literature, and Culture. It is important to note that French majors have priority over French minors when registering for upper level French courses.

PLEASE NOTE: The Department of French & Italian Studies cannot guarantee that French minors will be able to complete their requirements in a timely manner. We encourage minors to take as many courses as possible during summer quarter since we cannot guarantee access to courses during the regular academic year.
