French Concentration

The French concentration is designed to promote proficiency in French and a strong understanding of Francophone cultures. As the knowledge of at least one foreign language has become indispensable in today’s economic and political interdependence of Francophone nations, the concentration will promote the development of trans-cultural competence. The French concentration requires six courses (18 credits), out of which one may be at the 200 level and at least five must be at the 300 and 400 levels. Three courses (9 credits) must be earned at Bryant

French Minor

The French Minor is designed to provide students with an advanced level of language proficiency and an understanding of the culture of France and the French speaking countries where it has produced rich national literatures and diverse cultures (in Europe, Africa, Asia, Canada and the Caribbean).

French is now spoken as a first or second language by over 250 million people and is one of the official languages of the UN. It is the language of government, law, management, and business in many regions of the international community.

The French Minor will improve cross-cultural understanding and international awareness since the knowledge of at least one foreign language has become indispensable in today’s economic and political interdependence of nations.
