The undergraduate degree in French is classified as a B.A. in Modern Languages with one of two possible concentrations:
- B.A. in Modern Languages, French and Francophone Concentration — Our most popular option, this concentration prepares you for any career and allows you to choose your minor according to your interests.
- B.A. in Modern Languages, French Education Concentration — This option has the same requirements for the standard French degree, but you must complete a minor in secondary education, which requires more coursework than other minors.
Talk to your advisor about which classes you should take for the concentration you choose.
