New! The French Interdisciplinary Minor and the Spanish Interdisciplinary Minor

Did you know that by studying French or Spanish you can widen and deepen your understanding of your major field of study?

The French interdisciplinary minor and the Spanish interdisciplinary minor are designed to build a bridge between your French or Spanish studies and your major field of study, enabling you to use primary sources the language you study to discover how topics in your major play out in French- or Spanish-speaking contexts.

The minors allow you the flexibility to substitute one course for a French-themed or Spanish-themed course in your major. It also encourages you to experience French or Spanish outside the classroom by giving you the flexibility to substitute one course for a study abroad course in a French-speaking or Spanish-speaking country. When substitutions are made, you will integrate the material through periodic meetings in French with a member of the French faculty or in Spanish with a member of the Spanish faculty.

This interdisciplinary minor will add value to your major, will benefit your future academic and/or professional needs and will enable you to participate in a wider, global community.

By taking these five courses, you will complete the minor in French or Spanish interdisciplinary studies:
