French Major with Inclusive Adolescence Education


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z

The purpose of the French Major Program with Inclusive Adolescence Education is to prepare students to think and perceive rationally and critically with the goal of becoming effective teachers. 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 highly recomments 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.
