Minor in French and French Studies

Minor in French and French Studies: The requirement for a French and French Studies minor is six full courses beyond French 203. For these four courses, 300 or 301, 313, 314, and one 400-level French Studies course are required, and two related courses taken abroad; minors are strongly encouraged to participate in a semester or summer-abroad program in a French-speaking country (Sewanee’s own summer program when offered, or a similar program approved by the department for 5-6 weeks for 2 course credits). The alternative to studying abroad is to take one additional 400-level course in the department.

All majors (and minors where possible) are expected to live in the French House for at least one semester; application forms are available in the department. The French House also serves as the major site for most Cercle Français activity, and majors and minors are likewise expected to participate in the Cercle's cultural program, just as they should come regularly to the weekly Table Française.

Majors in French and French Studies may obtain honors by achieving a 3.5 departmental GPA, including courses taken during the last semester of their senior year.

The department also participates in interdisciplinary programs such as International and Global Studies, Film Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies.
