Students whose level of proficiency does not allow them to start with FREN 300 will be required to complete appropriate prerequisite courses prior to beginning at the 300-level. At least one-half of the hours required for the major must be completed at UNC Asheville.
Competency in French will be demonstrated by a capstone project consisting of research plus oral and written presentations on French language, literature or civilization, to be carried out in one of the 400-level courses, as approved by the Department Chair. Oral competency will be tested after completion of FREN 300. Students must demonstrate satisfactory oral competency before undertaking the capstone project.
