French (minor)

The French minor offers students the opportunity to combine Marymount’s intermediate and advanced language courses with a study abroad program in a French-speaking country. Through this minor, students will develop their language skills and fluency while being immersed in culture and civilization. The Center for Global Education guides students to choose the study abroad program that best fits their interests. (Please see Graduation Honors on page 40 of the Marymount University Catalog for information about study abroad credits and Graduation Honors.)
