The French section of the Modern Languages department offers courses in language, literature, culture and history.
- Majors are required to take a minimum of ten courses with French and francophone content to complete the major in French.
- Classes in the French program at the 100 and 200 level do not count towards the major.
- Of these ten courses, three courses can be taken in English, selected from a list approved by the department in consultation with the student’s advisor. A list of approved courses taught in English will be provided to the student upon request.
- The other seven courses should be at the 300- or 400-level and taught in French.
In addition, the student must make sure to fulfill the following requirements:
- French 301 (Composition et stylistique) is a required course for all majors
- At least two other 300-level courses taught French at UMB.
- At least two 400-level courses taught in French, either in the French program at UMB or in the joint UMB-UMA Paris program
Note: Taking three courses in English towards the major is just an option. The student may choose to complete the major by taking all ten courses within the French program at UMB and the UMB-UMA Paris program.
Requirements for the minor in French include:
- Intermediate competence (French 201-202 or equivalent)
- French 301 (Composition et stylistique)
- Three additional courses at the 300 or 400 level taught in French
