** Students who take Fr 201 at the university may count it as one course towards the minor (out of seven). Students may also count one 3-credit course towards the minor that is taught in English by a member of the French faculty either within or beyond the bounds of the department at Washington University. This course does not replace the requirements in French.
ONLY ONE CONVERSATION COURSE, TAKEN AT HOME (French 215 or 216) OR ABROAD, CAN COUNT TOWARD THE MINOR.
Three credits can count towards the minor from the Summer French Language Institute in Paris and six credits can count from the French for Pre-Med Program in Nice. Literature and Medicine, a survey course offered at the Pre-Med Program in Nice, can replace Fr 325 or 326.
We strongly recommend that students who spend a semester in Toulouse or Paris take French 318D before going abroad. Students spending a semester abroad may take 318 instead of 308. Any student who completes French 318 and does not go abroad should take French 308 as well.
Courses taken credit/no credit do not count toward the minor. Students must complete courses taken for the minor with a grade of B– or above and are expected to maintain a B average or better in all French courses.
