Students who begin their French studies at UW-Green Bay should enroll in French 101. The normal sequence of language courses is:

  • 101: Introduction to French I
  • 102: Introduction to French II
  • 201: Intermediate French I
  • 202: Intermediate French II
  • 225: Intermediate Conversation and Composition
  • 325: Advanced Conversation and Composition

Those who have studied French in high school should select a course appropriate to their level by counting a year of high school work as equivalent to one semester of college work, or they should consult the French adviser. Although not required, the University of Wisconsin placement exam can be a helpful guide in selecting a course. See information on language placement exams at UW-Green Bay. The tests may be taken on any UW campus. Information is available on the Testing Services website. Contact the French adviser for help interpreting your placement score.

Anyone interested in teacher certification in French should contact the Education office for requirements in addition to those listed here.

In addition to the regularly scheduled array of courses, the French program also offers students the opportunity to earn degree credits while studying abroad. Believing that experiencing another culture can have a profound effect on a student's life, UW-Green Bay supports a Universities of Wisconsin semester program in Paris every spring, and accepts credits with faculty approval from numerous other study-abroad programs. See the adviser for details.
