French (120 Hours)

A minimum of 34 hours beyond the 203 level (or the equivalent level in competence) in the major language is required for a Bachelor of Arts degree in Foreign Languages and Cultures. FRENCH 101, 102, and 203 do not count toward the major. Students who place into 102 and receive a B or better qualify for an additional 4 departmental advanced placement credits; students placing into 203 or above and receiving a B or better qualify for 8 departmental advanced placement credits. A maximum of 8 departmental AP credits is possible. See school for details.

Majors must complete either a minor in a second foreign language, a concentration of at least 16 credits in a related field, or a second major.

No course in which a C- or lower grade is earned will be counted toward the major. 300-400-level courses taken pass, fail may not be included for credit toward the major. No course may be repeated for credit toward the major unless thus designated in the catalog. No course may count for both the major and the minor.

Majors and prospective majors are strongly encouraged to spend at least one semester abroad, living in the target culture and enhancing their fluency. Many accredited study abroad programs are available; students should work with their advisers in the selection of a program.

Of the 34 hours required for the major, a minimum of 15 must be taken in residence with 6 of these hours at the 400 level. A maximum of 12 credits per semester or 18 credits per year earned in a study abroad program may be applied toward the major. Credits for FRENCH 105, 205, 305, and 405 may not be applied toward the major.

All majors must complete an exit proficiency examination during the semester in which they complete the last language course of their major. There is a fee charged for the exam.
