||French (FRE) course electives
French majors and minors are required to meet with the French faculty during the first half of their junior year for a discussion of their progress and goals. Further assessment will be accomplished through the Capstone Project. The Project can take one of four forms:
- Senior Thesis. Students write an extended research paper in French (20-page minimum with full MLA documentation) on a literary, cultural or linguistic topic with the guidance of a French faculty advisor.
- Community Outreach Project. Students, either individually or in small groups, initiate a community event or project promoting the study of French or celebration of local French identity, language, and culture with the guidance of a French faculty advisor.
- Combination of Thesis and Community Outreach Project. Students may elect to combine the above two options of writing an extended research paper in French (15-page minimum) and initiating a community project or event under the guidance of a French faculty advisor.
- Study abroad at a francophone university. Selection of the program is made with the guidance of a French faculty advisor.
