Why minor in French?
More than 400 million people around the globe speak French, making it one of the most widely spoken and influential languages in the world. French is an essential language for anyone who wants to converse fluently in the international arenas of business, diplomacy, science, art and culture.
As a French minor at UND, you'll immerse yourself in French language and culture and examine literature, film and other media from the 50-plus French-speaking countries of the world. You'll choose upper-division courses from the following categories:
- The study and practice of spoken and written French in national and international contexts
- An interdisciplinary approach to the study of Francophone literature and films
- The understanding and analysis of Francophone perspectives regarding socio-cultural contemporary world issues
Our students have paired a minor in French with engineering, medicine, education, aviation, criminal justice, music, history and many other fields.
