Major in French Studies

Prerequisite: French 8

The French Studies Major consists of ten courses, with a minimum of six selected from French 10 and above, and from one to four from appropriate major-level courses offered by other departments or programs. French Studies Majors must include one course from French 20 through French 25 (to be completed by the end of the junior year). Two of the French L.S.A.+ and/or F.S.P. courses may count toward the major. During their senior year, as their culminating experience, French Studies Majors must take either French 78: Senior Major Workshop or, with special permission, an upper-level French course (numbered French 40 or above). Students taking an upper-level French course as their culminating experience are required to supplement the regular reading with extra materials chosen in consultation with the instructor, and to write a research or critical paper of at least twenty pages. The major card must be approved by the French Major Advisor.
