Students are strongly encouraged to study abroad, but should also plan to complete a significant amount of course work in French at UMM. Up to 9 credits for one semester abroad or 16 credits for a year abroad may count towards the French major. Transfer students may apply up to 9 credits from another institution towards the French major. Students who wish to apply both transfer and study abroad credits to the French major must petition the French faculty for approval. Decisions will be made on an individual basis.


Fren 4901 must be taken on campus and the final seminar presentation must be given in French. One cross-listed French course taught in English (such as Fren 1302, 1303, 1304, or 1311) may be counted toward the major, provided that students complete written work for the class in French. Courses with grades of D or S/N may not be used to meet the major requirements. Students majoring in French are encouraged to take at least one year of instruction in another foreign language.
