  • French Programs at Hamline University

    Hamline’s French & Francophone Studies program brings cultural awareness, world history, and the significance of otherness to bear in connecting students to the French-speaking world. The cornerstone of our teaching method is the art of rhetoric that is embedded in the critical thinking, speaking, writing, and listening skills that help our students become true world citizens and better leaders of tomorrow.

    Our graduates go on to careers in government, medicine, law, education, service, and business.

    Announcement about the French program

    Hamline University is in the process of phasing out the French major. Hamline students who  officially declared a major or minor in this area by December 13, 2011, will be provided the opportunity to complete their program of study.

    New students who are interested in studying French will still have the ability to do so through Hamline, with an ACTC interdisciplinary major, where they take all of their courses at Hamline except those needed to complete a French major or minor, which they make take at another ACTC school.

    By early February 2012, a degree audit will be completed for all students who have declared a major or minor in French. The degree audit will help Hamline assess the time frame necessary for the phasing out the program. The goal of the phase-out process will be to both assure that the programmatic needs of those pursuing the major or minor are met, and to establish a reasonable date beyond which offering individual courses required of the major or minor will no longer be necessary.

    If you have questions about these changes, please contact Barbara Younoszai at 651-523-2394 or byounoszai@hamline.edu.
