The UW-Platteville Department of Humanities offers a minor in French for students interested in combining a minor in a foreign language with other areas of study for the purpose of enhancing communication skills and career opportunities. Likewise, apart from the intellectual development that results from the study of the French language and francophone culture, students may also find professional employment in many different areas, including international business, marketing, civil service, and teaching.
The minor requires a total of 24 credits with a minimum of eight credits selected from courses numbered 3000 or higher. Students who minor in French must have a grade point average of no lower than a 2.50 in the French courses they take.
