The French Minor, which may be declared in the Department of World Languages, Bunce Hall 305 or by contacting the University Advising Center, Savitz Hall, Suite 323 (856.256.4459 / advise@rowan.edu), offers a flexible curriculum with many opportunities for selection of courses in French language, civilization, culture, and literature. It provides a general background for future professional studies and advanced degrees in French and work in a wide variety of fields, such as social, administrative and governmental work, as well as international business.

This 18 s.h. minor is open to all students. A placement interview is strongly recommended for students with previous knowledge of French so that students may begin the minor at the appropriate level. For placement interview information, please contact Dr. Maria Hernandez at hernandezm@rowan.edu. Students may earn the credits for any skipped courses via the Authorization for Credit by Examination process and these credits are counted in fulfillment of minor requirements. All courses must be passed with a letter grade of "C-" or better and no courses may be taken P/NC. Students may transfer credits into the French Minor, including from Study Abroad and up to 9 s.h. from the CLEP Exam in French (equivalent to Elementary French I & II and Intermediate French I – contact the Testing Center, testingservices@rowan.edu, in the Academic Success Center, Savitz Hall, Suite 304, for more information). Students planning to Study Abroad must meet with their French Advisor in order to determine course equivalents.
