Minor in French
The French Minor (20 credits) provides students with the basic lexical and grammatical foundations for reading, writing, speaking, and understanding the spoken word in French. It also incorporates the study of culture in the francophone world. Francophone literature is also introduced at the upper division level. Students have the opportunity to travel and study abroad for a summer or a semester.
The goals of the French program are (a) to provide a quality language-learning experience so that the student is capable of communicating with native speakers and (b) to provide a body of cultural knowledge so that the student is able to relate cross-culturally to the native speaker. The French program at Evangel is designed to take the student from the novice to the lower-advanced level. A student who has studied French in high school may enter the program at a higher level of instruction in college and therefore earn the Concentration or Minor more quickly. Proficiency in French, rather than credit hours earned, determines a student’s placement. Proficiency is evaluated by an examination and an interview. Summer and regular-semester study-abroad opportunities reinforce the classroom experience, making French language and culture come alive.
