We encourage students earning a MA or PhD in a related field to add a minor in French to their degree program.
Such a minor lends breadth to students' programs while deepening their understanding of the field of inquiry, theoretical engagement, and methodologies of French studies today and allowing them to refine the linguistic skills necessary for advanced research and scholarly communication in the Francophone world.
In consultation with their advisor in their home department and the director of gradutuate studies in French, students wishing to complete the minor must plan to complete at least 9 credits for an MA minor or 12 credits for the PhD minor, chosen from the 5000-8000-level course offerings of the Department of French and Italian.
