French Honors Program

Currently the department is not accepting new majors in French. If you are interested in studying French, consider a minor in French.

The below information is for students already enrolled in the program.

The honors program is open by departmental permission to French majors with a minimum 3.25 cumulative grade-point average and a 3.25 GPA in French courses. To apply, students must have at least 57 credits earned and must submit two letters of reference from French faculty members and a two-page self-statement describing the student’s academic and career goals.

Students complete FRNC 483/H/; one literature course from FRNC 301 or above; CHSS 489 (a multidisciplinary colloquium emphasizing problem-solving, discussion, reading, and writing on a topic or theme); and HNRC 499, which fulfills the Liberal Studies Synthesis requirement. Students must earn at least a B in each course completed for the honors track.

To determine how honors track courses will be integrated into existing requirements for the French majors, students should consult their advisors.
