French Minor

Gain a competitive edge

Regardless of your major, adding a foreign language minor not only demonstrates your ability to communicate internationally, it opens up career opportunities.  You also will learn about the wonders of French language, history, and culture!


To earn a minor in French, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Completion of 15 credit hours, at least nine of which must be taken at NC State (a maximum of six hours may be transferred from another university)
  • A grade of C- or better in all minor courses
  • Coursework that includes FLF 201 Intermediate French I or FLF 212 French: Language, Culture and Technology as well as FLF 202 Intermediate French II
  • Up to three additional upper-division (300-400 level) courses in French, one of which must be a course in film, literature, culture, or civilization

French Minor Requirements


Application for admission to any university minor program is now available via MyPack Portal. Admission will be based on the student’s academic record, and in most cases no longer requires departmental review. Learn more about how to add a minor.


The minor must be completed no later than the semester in which the student expects to graduate from his or her degree program. Please meet with Director of Undergraduate Advising Susan Navey-Davis if you have any questions.
