Professors Chebinou, Lewis, Reeck,
Allegheny College offers a major and minor in French and instruction in the French language through the department of World Languages and Cultures. For Allegheny’s Learning Outcomes for the study of world languages and cultures, including French, please see the “World Languages and Cultures ” section in this Bulletin.
See also the minor in “French Studies .”
Juniors are encouraged to study in a French-speaking country. The College sponsors several distinct study-abroad programs that are open to all qualified Allegheny students and to which Allegheny financial aid may be applied. Most students of French choose to study in one of Allegheny’s Sponsored Programs. Coursework taken abroad may be applicable to the French major or minor. More detail is available in the “Study Away ” section of the Bulletin, through the International Education Office, or by consulting with a member of the French faculty.
International Economics and Business
Those students wishing to pursue a career in language with a focus on international economics or business should combine their study of a particular country and language with a background in economics. If students are majoring in Economics or Business and minoring or double majoring in French, they should take FRNCH 301 and/or FRNCH 302 as part of their requirements. In addition, students are encouraged to study abroad and to complete an internship either abroad or with a company engaged in international trade. For economics courses that complement a French major or minor, see the course of study described under International Economics and Business in the “Economics “ and “Business ” sections of this Bulletin.
