Advising Notes

1. CR/NC grading is not permitted for courses in the French major.

2. Students must receive a minimum grade of C in each upper-division course used toward the French major.

3. French majors who have studied French in high school or who by culture or experience can speak French at a certain level of proficiency must consult with a French adviser to determine which required lower-division courses, if any, may be waived. (Also see Credit Allowance in Foreign Language.) French majors who are eligible to enroll immediately in FREN 1B, 2A, 2B, 4, 5, or in an upper-division French course are not required to make up the lower-division units waived. Waiver of required units for the major does not reduce the total number of units required for the awarding of the bachelor's degree.

4. Only 3 units of courses taught in English may be applied to the French major.

5. A maximum of two courses from one department may be used simultaneously to satisfy the General Education requirement and the major requirements. If the French major is the secondary major in a double major (see double major), this limitation does not apply. Consult a faculty adviser for additional details.

6. Students majoring in French cannot count French courses for G.E. Integration IC.
