French Program Updates
The Department of Modern Languages is happy to announce a new format for elementary level French language courses beginning fall semester 2014. We are replacing the 5 credit beginning French I & II (that meets twice weekly for a grueling 2 hours and 15 minutes) with 4 credit, hybrid courses. Successful completion of the new courses will fulfill the 2 semester CLAS foreign language requirement. FREN 1001 and 1002 (French Language 1 and 2) will meet twice weekly for 1 hour and 20 minutes and will require 50 additional minutes of online work per week. The new format will not only make it easier for students to fit a language into their schedules but will also allow them to continue to benefit from in-class interaction essential for the development of solid second language skills while at the same time taking advantage of excellent online activities that fit so well into their learning style.
