Francophone Studies, Minor

The Minor in Francophone Studies allows students interested in topics related to the French-speaking world the opportunity to acquire a basic level of cultural competency by taking courses taught in English and offered across a range of disciplines; including, but not limited to: Africana Studies, Film, History, Latin American Studies, Languages and Culture Studies, Philosophy, and Women’s Studies. In addition to fostering critical thinking and other transferable skills, the broad base of knowledge about Francophone-related topics that students acquire in this minor positions them to work for companies and agencies that serve the growing Francophone population in our region and worldwide. Career possibilities include: 1) the foreign service, the military, and other governmental agencies; 2) non-governmental organizations with an emphasis on international or cross-cultural orientations; and 3) international business.
