Minoring in French

The goal of the French minor is to achieve proficiency in the French language and a strong understanding of literary and cultural studies. In addition to three courses in French (not in translation) at the 300 level, French minors will need to demonstrate language proficiency by completion of French 210 or French 320.

Requirements for the Minor

  1. Three units of 300-level French, one of which may be French 320. Students who start French at Reed at the 300 level must take French 320 in addition to three other 300-level French courses. At least one French literature course must be taken at Reed.
  2. Depending on language proficiency, additional courses or substitutions (see chart below).
