French Studies

Coordinator: Assistant Professor Sara Kippur and Borden W. Painter, Jr., ’58/H’95 Professor of European History Kathleen Kete

The minor in French studies has at its heart a travel-abroad experience in France, because living abroad is so centrally important to the understanding of another culture. This minor gives students the opportunity to integrate their study-abroad experience with courses taken at Trinity both before and after their study abroad. Students who participate in the Paris Program are strongly encouraged to pursue this minor as are those who have taken a freshman seminar on Paris.

Course requirements:

The minor consists of six courses distributed as follows:

Courses must be drawn from at least three categories of inquiry. Courses taught during the 2013-2014 school year that will count for the French studies minor within these three categories include:

The arts

History, politics, and thought

Language and literature
