Allegheny College offers a major and minor in French and instruction in the French language through the department of Modern and Classical Languages. For Allegheny’s Learning Outcomes for the study of modern languages, including French, please see the “Modern and Classical Languages ” 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; see the “Study Away ” section of this Bulletin for details. Most students of French choose to study in the Allegheny-sponsored programs in Angers (semester or year-long exchange program with the Université Catholique de l’Ouest) or Paris (the Boston University semester internship program). Coursework taken abroad may be applicable to the French major or minor; consult the department for details.
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 French and minoring in economics, they should take FRNCH 301 , FRNCH 305 , and one other course at the 300-level as part of their requirements. Students may also select a double major in these two disciplines. 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 ” section of this Bulletin.
