Minors in French Studies

There are two minors available in French Studies. The minor in French Language, Sociolinguistics, and Translation and the minor in French Language, Literature, and Culture. The French minors are open and have no minimum requirements to declare. Students can declare a minor with the advisor in their major department.  Please contact the Humanities Academic Services Center (HAS) at has-center@uw.edu or Academic Advisor, Sabrina Tatta, at sabri@uw.edu with any questions about the French minors.

French majors receive priority registration for FRENCH 301, 302, 303, and FRENCH 400 level courses in registration Period I and as such the Department of French & Italian Studies cannot guarantee that French minors will be able to register for these courses and complete their requirements in a timely manner.
