The major in French is based on the prior completion of 14 hours of proficiency-level preparation numbered FR 1100-FR 1150 and FR 2100-FR 2150, or the equivalent. Equivalent preparation can be completed in high school, junior college or other colleges or universities, or waived through ACCP and AP credits, satisfactory CLEP scores, or a department placement test.
The major concentration in French consists of a minimum of 21 upper-division semester hours of course work. In addition, 12 hours of related course work are required. A grade of C or better is required in each upper-division course of the major. (A grade of C- will not satisfy the requirement.)
