Minor in French Studies
The requirement for a French Studies minor is six full courses beyond French 300. For these six courses, 314 is required, along with 311, 312, or 313, one 400-level French Studies course, and one related course outside the department. For the other two courses, minors may choose either to participate in a summer-abroad program in a French-speaking country for 5-8 weeks for 2 course credits (Sewanee’s own summer program when offered, or a similar program approved by the department in off-years) or to take two additional 400-level courses numbered 411 to 419 at Sewanee.
All majors (and minors where possible) are expected to try to live in the French House for at least one semester; application forms are obtainable from 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 literature 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 and Women's Studies.
