The Minor: French, German, Spanish
The growing need for experts in the international aspects of academic and professional fields has led to a renewed interest in the foreign language minor as a complement to a student's training in a major field. In increasing numbers, students completing baccalaureate degrees in the Henry W. Bloch School of Business and Public Administration, in the Conservatory of Music and in other departments of The College of Arts and Sciences have selected a course of study that includes a minor in a foreign language. Majors in all fields are urged to discuss this possibility with their advisers.

Requirements for Program Minor

An academic minor in a given language requires a minimum of 18 hours consisting of six hours of second-year courses or above plus 12 hours of courses at the 300 and 400 levels. FRENCH 435 and GERMAN 304 do not count toward a minor.
