Minor in French
The requirements for a French Minor are 18 credits, including 12 credits beyond the second year. Your two semesters of intermediate French, Fr 201 and Fr 202, can give you six of the 18 credits; you need only 12 more credits at the 300 and/or 400 level. The next courses after 202 are three credits each, so you will need four more courses to fulfill the requirement. This can normally be done in three semesters.
Important note: The university allows as many as 6 “bypassed credits” to count toward the Minor. If you tested out of one or two semesters of intermediate French, the bypassed credits you received will count toward the Minor.
Note also: All courses counting toward the minor must be taken for a grade; credits earned with CR/NCR will not count toward the Minor. More information on the major and minor can be found in this brochure.
