This French Language/International Studies and Business Concentration offers students an exciting well-rounded program for today's global society. Necessary "cultural baggage" in French promotes a graduate's success in fields related to International Studies (politics and government, for example) and in Business (global finance, for example).
Students wishing to transfer to USF should complete the A.A. degree at a Florida College System institution. Some courses required for the major may also meet General Education Requirements thereby transferring maximum hours to the university. If students transfer without an A.A. degree and have fewer than 60 semester hours of acceptable credit, the students must meet the university’s entering freshman requirements including ACT or SAT test scores, GPA, and course requirements.
To complete a major in French, students should demonstrate proficiency at the intermediate level within the target language. This may be accomplished by completing 6-12 hours within the language or by demonstrated competency at the intermediate level. If this coursework (or associated competency) is not completed at a Florida College System institution, it must be completed before the degree is granted. A grade of “C” is the minimum acceptable grade.
