The B.A. in French and Francophone Studies enables students to become fluent in French and provides a broad knowledge of French and Francophone literature and culture. Lower-division courses emphasize the acquisition of language skills. Upper-division courses focus on developing language fluency and introducing students to a variety of critical approaches to analyzing French and Francophone literature and culture. FRE 202 is normally a prerequisite for advanced courses. All students with any previous instruction in or experience with French are required to take a placement examination, available online through myslice, which is accessible via the department’s website, with one’s netid and password. This requirement applies to all students, regardless of class standing. Students interested in majoring or minoring in French should consult the French and Francophone Studies major advisor as early as possible. Early consultation is particularly important for students with little or no preparation in French so they may be sure to satisfy prerequisites and requirements within four years.
