Major Requirements

Course Requirements

Students who begin their study of French at DePaul with FCH 202 or higher may substitute a 300-level French elective course for any of the required 200-level courses.

Open Electives

Open elective credit also is required to meet the minimum graduation requirement of 192 hours.​

Study Abroad Requirements

Year-long program 

Students on a year-long study abroad program would most likely complete 10 courses, 5 of which may be applied to their French Major or Minor provided the courses are at the B1 level or higher for FCH 200 level credit and B2 level for FCH 300 level credit. The remaining courses might fulfill various learning domains or other major/minor requirements. They could also potentially be counted as general electives.  Note that the 5 French courses completed on a year-long program will most likely generate more than 5 courses worth of credit (30 vs. 20); the excess credits could be used toward the fulfillment of domain requirements, if possible, or applied to general electives, as appropriate.
 

Semester-long program

Students on semester-long study abroad program would most likely complete 5 courses, 3 of which may be applied to their French Major or Minor provided the courses are at the B1 level or higher for FCH 200 level credit. The remaining courses might fulfill various learning domains or other major/minor requirements. They could also potentially be counted as general electives.  Note that the 3 French courses taken on a semester-long program will most likely generate more than 3 courses worth of credit (18 vs. 12); the excess credits could be used toward the fulfillment of domain requirements, if possible, or applied to general electives, as appropriate.
