French (minor)

Students Studying Outside

Enhancing Career Opportunities

Students in the French program gain proficiency in the French language and obtain knowledge of history, literature and culture through a communicative approach - opening the doors to more career options after graduation.

Individual attention and small classes allow students to tailor their program around their interests. Several of the courses in the French sequence also qualify towards a major or minor in Global, Cultural, and Language Studies.

Students are able and encouraged to spend four weeks studying abroad in Dakar, Senegal - a country in West Africa known for its rich heritage and history.


20 credits beyond FRN 1111 including FRN 3301, FRN 3303 or 3304 and FRN 3305. See full course descriptions.


Students with an intermediate and advanced proficiency in French can work with local elementary schools to provide French language instruction as part of an after-school curriculum. This program is a joint effort with the University of Minnesota Duluth and provides real-world teaching experience.
