A minor in French translation pairs well with any major - whether you're in business, communication, medicine, education, or many other professional fields. Or perhaps you'd just like to pursue a personal interest.
You'll receive a more intense focus on the composition and stylistics of translation, alongside a briefer overview of French culture and conversation. At the end of your session, choose your own project to demonstrate what you've learned in a two-part Capstone session.

Hone your translation skills in France by joining one of our many study abroad programs - whether over the summer, for a semester, or for an entire academic year. See the Center for International Education Abroad for more information.
