The French Major (BA)
Associate Professors: James Martell
The French minor is a course of study designed as a second field for students interested in developing their fluency in French and gaining the understanding of culture and literature that comes from the study of a foreign language.
Students majoring in French are strongly encouraged to study abroad and to pursue a double major.
Students may develop major in French normally by studying for a summer or semester in a French-speaking country.
Students may skip FRN 101 and 102 if they have equivalent language proficiency in French.
* FRN 101 and FRN 102 may also be used to satisfy core requirements.
NOTE: To graduate with a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from Lyon College,
students must successfully complete a minimum of 120 semester credit hours comprised of
our required Core curriculum (44-48 hours), the requirements of at least one major (credit
hours vary per major), and a selection of our Liberal Arts electives. They must also earn at
least a 2.00 cumulative grade point average for all work taken at Lyon College and a 2.00
cumulative grade point average in their major, minor, and concentration.
