French Studies

French Studies Minor

French Studies provides an opportunity for students to supplement their academic major though focused coursework in the language, literature, and civilization of France and the francophone world. It is an interdisciplinary field of study, drawing on courses in literature, film, culture, and philosophy. The knowledge and skills gained from this minor can complement any concentration, deepen students’ global competencies, and prepare them for graduate school and a range of international professions.

Undergraduate students from any division of the university who are not majoring in Liberal Arts can minor in French Studies. Because many students come to Lang having already studied French, most of the courses for the minor are taught in French. Students in upper-level language courses sharpen their fluency in spoken and written French while studying important literary and cultural texts in their original language. The elective courses allow students to broaden their intellectual horizons by engaging with a wide range of critical texts and issues in the francophone tradition.
