Minor in French


Students may obtain a French minor by completing a minimum of 15 credits beyond FRENCH 2100, of which at least 6 credits must be in literature. The courses listed below are the most likely choice.

Students beginning at a level higher than FRENCH 2160 due to placement testing must still complete the minimum of 15 additional credits in order to receive the minor. A minimum of 9 credits, including 3 in literature, must be taken in residence.

Additionally, course work must be completed with a grade in the C range or higher in each of the required courses and students must maintain a 2.0 GPA in the minor.

A minor consists of at least 15 credits, including at least 6 credits numbered 2000 or above, 9 of the required credits must be taken in MU course work. This requirement can be reduced from 9 to 6 at the discretion of an individual department. Students must meet the minimum GPA requirements for a minor, which in no case can be lower than 2.0. In addition, a student cannot receive a grade lower than a C- in any course applied towards a minor in the College. For more information, please see Requirements for Optional Minor.
