Academic Catalog August 2008 - August 2009 Undergraduate and Graduate
To earn this degree, complete at least 120 units of coursework, which we describe in the sections that follow:
at least 35 units of liberal studies requirements. Be aware that you may not use courses with an FRE prefix to satisfy these liberal studies requirements.
at least 35 units of major requirements
elective courses, if needed, to reach an overall total of at least 120 units
Be aware that some courses required for your degree may have prerequisites that you must also take. Check the courses in the appropriate subject. (You may be able to count these prerequisites toward your liberal studies or general elective credit.)
Also be aware that you must complete NAUís diversity requirements by taking two 3-unit courses, one in ethnic diversity and one in global awareness. These courses may be used to meet other requirements within your academic plan if you choose them carefully. Click here for a list of the available diversity courses.
Also be aware that NAU requires that at least 30 units of the courses you take for your degree must be upper-division courses (those numbered 300 and above).
Additionally, be aware that you must earn a grade of C or better in any course you wish to apply toward the major in French.
In addition, you must pass the international French proficiency exam given on the Flagstaff campus and an oral exit interview in French.
Finally, please note that you may be able to use some courses to meet more than one requirement; however, you must still meet the total of at least 120 units to graduate. Contact your advisor for details.
Complete the following 35 units, with at least 18 units taken at NAU:
FRE 201 and 202 (8 units) (or credit by exam for either or both of them)
FRE 321 or 322 (3 units)
FRE 405 and 406 (6 units) (You may substitute FRE 421 and 422 for 405 and 406 with your advisorís consent.)
FRE 303W or 304W, either of which meets NAUís junior writing requirement (3 units)
FRE 403C, 404C, and 485C, which together meet NAUís senior capstone requirement (7 units)
8 additional units of coursework in French, excluding FRE 101 and 102
Please be aware that you may not count FRE 101 and 102 toward your major requirements or liberal studies.
In addition, you may only take lower-level FRE courses if you have not already taken advanced FRE coursework. For instance, after youíve completed 200-level FRE courses, you canít take FRE courses at the 100 level; after completing a 300-level courses you canít take 100- or 200-level courses.
Additional coursework is required, if, after you have met the previously described requirements, you have not yet completed a total of 120 units of credit.
You may take these remaining courses from any academic areas, using these courses to pursue your specific interests and goals. We encourage you to consult with your advisor to select the courses that will be most advantageous to you. (Please note that you may also use prerequisites or transfer credits as electives if they werenít used to meet major, minor, or liberal studies requirements.)
