Who should be a French Major/Minor?
THINK GLOBALLY. Those who want to develop the skills and understanding essential for developing a global perspective in an increasingly interdependent world, should consider a French major.
THINK FUN. If you are looking for a college experience that is both fun and rewarding, then French is great for you!
MINOR DECISIONS. Students majoring in French will also choose an interdisciplinary minor. Most French students interested in the humanities usually choose Humanistic Studies; students interested in teaching may choose an Education minor; those interested in business often choose Business Administration; and those interested in communication fields or creative fields usually choose a minor in Communication and the Arts.
