For objectives and student learning outcomes, please see “French Major.”

Minor Requirements

16 semester hours taken beyond FREN 2103 :


The FREN 2101 , FREN 2102 , FREN 2103 , and FREN 2104  series is recommended for those who seek basic proficiency in the language. This series requires attendance of a one hour weekly language lab.

French Placement Exam

Any student who has knowledge of or has had prior instruction in French in high school or at a college or university other than LMU must take the French Placement Exam.

This requirement includes students who have taken the AP French Exam in high school. Generally, a student who receives a score of 5 or 4 on the AP French Exam (Language or Literature) places in FREN 2103 . Final placement is conditional upon the instructor’s consent. Course credit will be given for FREN 2101  and FREN 2102  once the student’s official scores have been received from the College Board. It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that the official AP scores have been sent to Loyola Marymount University.

To know when and how a student should take a language placement exam in French, please refer to the guidelines provided under Modern Languages and Literatures .

Students that need more semester hours to complete the major because of their language placement must take additional courses in the language. In the event that there are no courses in the language, students may take MDLG 3400 , MDLG 4400 , or FNLT 4200  (provided it is related to language concentration). If additional classes are not available in the Modern Languages and Literatures Department, students may fulfill those credits with courses in the appropriate cultural studies areas in consultation with the language coordinator and the Department Chair.
