The department offers a major in French studies. The requirements for the French studies major are French  310 and 314, plus any three out of the following 300-level courses (312, 313, 331, 341, 351, 385, or 391) and three 400-level French courses (460, 488, and 490).

Upon approval of the undergraduate major adviser, one of the 300-level courses may be replaced by the following choice of courses: (1) an extradepartmental course in a suitable supporting subject (such as art history, history, or political science); or (2) by French 361. French 361 is an optional course in English that may be taken by non-majors, or in addition to the major, or as the extradepartmental course to be counted towards the major. All courses must be taken for a letter grade.
