Minor in French

The minor in French is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill and Fordham College at Lincoln Center. Students in Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies may minor in French only if their schedules are sufficiently flexible to permit them to take day classes at the Rose Hill or Lincoln Center campuses.

Minors in French will take a minimum of six courses numbered 1502 and higher to be chosen in consultation with the program adviser. These courses will normally include FREN 2001, FREN 2600, and at least two French courses taken at the 3000 level.

Study Abroad Policy
French minors are highly encouraged to spend a semester or summer in a Francophone country. Students are encouraged to take a wide range of upper-level courses in the humanities and even social sciences provided they are taught in French and have a rigorous course of study. Upon discussion and approval with their minor/study abroad adviser and the successful completion of the course (C or higher), students studying abroad for an academic semester can receive credit for up to two courses and up to three courses for an academic year.

Programs that provide direct enrollment in the host nation's university system are particularly encouraged, as are family stays.

Note: Please consult with your French study abroad adviser for a list of department-approved programs prior to going abroad.
