MINOR IN FRENCH AND FRANCOPHONE STUDIES

The Minor in French and Francophone Studies consists of a total of 15 credits. The student will take four required courses (12 credits) and one elective course (3 credits). Total credit hours: 15. No minimum grade but overall 2.0 in courses must be obtained.

Our goal with the Minor in French and Francophone Studies is to give you a broad knowledge of French language, history, and culture while strengthening your language skills. You can start your minor after FRE 2200 or an equivalent. The required courses of the Minor cover the fundamental aspects of French culture and language: civilization, literature, conversation and cinema, and composition. All courses are taught in French. For your elective, you may choose any other FRE 3000, 4000 or 5000 course. For instance, you may choose to learn about the Francophone World, deepen your knowledge of French literature or take a course in French business. You can also choose to study abroad in France, which will provide you with a firsthand experience of French life, culture, and language!

A minor in French and Francophone studies at USF Saint Petersburg will give you a strong foundation for your career, your life, or any major.
