French Minor in Translation

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.

As with our French major and minor programs, our low 16:1 faculty-to-student ratio means you’ll get the personal attention you need to succeed. Experienced professors – not grad students – teach all your classes, and tutoring is available when you need it.

Study Abroad

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.
