The French Major (BA)

Associate Professors: James Martell

The French major is a course of study designed for students interested in developing their fluency in French and gaining an understanding of culture and literature that comes from the study of a foreign language. 

Students majoring in French are strongly encouraged to study abroad.

Students may complete their coursework by studying for a summer or a semester at the University of Poitiers, France, or at another institution in a French-speaking country after consulting with the French faculty at Lyon.

Students may skip FRN 101 and 102 if they have equivalent language proficiency in French. 

 

NOTE

* 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.
