Minor in French leading to P-12 Certification

The Department of English and Modern Foreign Languages offers your choice of two minors in French. The French minor focuses on the language, literature, and culture of France and will prepare you for additional studies in these areas. If you are considering a teaching career, you may want to choose a French minor leading to P-12 Certification. French minors are encouraged to immerse themselves in the French language and culture through study abroad.


Your French teaching certification will prepare you for careers in education, government, foreign service, business, and any other field in which knowledge of another language and culture is vital. Or you could use your degree to pursue a post-graduate degree or program to further your education.

Possible career options include:

  • French teacher (P-12)
  • Interpreter or translator
  • Librarian or researcher
  • Law enforcement, ranging from local police departments to federal services
  • Diplomatic position, including foreign or domestic offices
