Upon the completion of the French Studies minor students should be able to:

  • Speak, read and write French at the intermediate-high or advanced level
  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the cultures and communication cultures of the Francophone world
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the French civilizations and its cultural products, such as literature, art, government, etc.
