Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

Coordinator: Stacey Hahn (French)

The concentration in French studies provides an interdisciplinary understanding of French culture for students not majoring in French. Courses in French language, literature, civilization, art history and history are required.

In addition to providing students with a well-rounded background in the area of French studies, this concentration is also useful to students planning graduate work in French history or art history.

The concentration offers selected courses from this catalog as warranted by student needs and availability of faculty. Specific offerings for each term may be found in the Schedule of Classes.

The concentration requires completion of a minimum of 28 credits, including 8 credits in French language and 20 credits in courses conducted in English as follows:

1. 8 credits of French language taken at Oakland University

Students must achieve minimally at the 215 level. Students who place into FRH 215  will take FRH 215  and FRH 314 ; if they place higher than FRH 215 , they will take FRH 314  plus 4 credits in a higher level course.


All conducted in English.


Other topic courses in history may be substituted with permission of the concentration coordinator.

*Students must take either HST 101  or HST 102  as a co-requisite for the concentration (either of which satisfies the general education requirement).

4. 4 credits in Art and Art History


Other topic courses in art history may be substituted with permission of the concentration coordinator.
