French Major with Inclusive Adolescence Education


Return to ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z Return to: ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z

The purpose of the major program is to educate students to think and perceive rationally and critically. This education includes reading and thinking; learning about literary and cultural movements; and making connections between the primarily aesthetic literary artifacts of the culture and its political, social, and economic history.

Through the Emerson Foreign Language Laboratory, students are trained to use new learning and technology media at all language levels to allow them to communicate effectively in the world. Likewise, they are encouraged to prepare themselves philosophically and practically to make linkages between the major and other academic disciplines.

The student majoring in French learns about the world of ideas and letters, past and present. This training requires at least one semester of study abroad; one year is recommended. The cohesive, integrated program of foreign language, culture, and literature courses ensures maximum proficiency in the target language.

All resident French majors are required to spend at least two years in the Maison Française. One of these must be the year following their academic year in France, to allow them to maintain fluency in the language skills acquired abroad.

For students pursuing careers in education a minimum GPA of 2.7 is required for student teaching.

Core Curriculum Requirements


All Nazareth students complete Core Curriculum coursework as part of their degree requirements. The Core provides a foundation in the liberal arts and sciences while guiding students to pose and explore their own intellectual questions. See Academic Policies and Procedures  for specific core curriculum requirements. 

French Core


French majors are required to take the following courses. (Note: Any of these courses, except for the 301-302 and 401-402 series, can be taken abroad.)

French Study Abroad Program


In affiliation with the Université de Haute-Bretagne, Nazareth College offers an academic year in Rennes, France. The core program for French majors includes the following basic courses, which vary in degrees of complexity and intensity: language-composition; conversational-structural analysis and explication de texte; phonetics; literature; contemporary French civilization; history of art. Students may select elective courses from a wide area including such fields as history, English, fine arts, foreign languages (Celtic, German, Spanish, Russian) and literature and economics.

Required Courses for Inclusive Adolescence Education


See Education: Initial Teacher Certification in Inclusive Adolescence Education  for course requirements.

  • Note - students who are majoring in a Foreign Language with Inclusive Adolescence Education complete their study abroad semester in spring of the sophomore year.

French Senior Experience


The Senior Experience for the French major culminates with two literature seminars, FRN 401-402, that encourage students to develop further scholarly and critical thinking, including current theoretical discussions in the academy.

The Comprehensive Examination (written, oral) provides students with the threefold opportunity:

  • to ascertain that seniors have adequately mastered the French language

  • to help seniors synthesize the subject matter of the four-year learning experience

  • to demonstrate a working knowledge of French culture and literature
