Minor in French North American Studies
PLEASE NOTE: The University of Maine Board of Trustees has eliminated this program. Currently enrolled students with questions should contact the Dean of LAC for more information.
This interdisciplinary minor focuses on the diversity of French society in North America. Weaving together geography, history, literature, films, and current events, it involves students in field based experiences and research projects such as trips to historical and cultural sites, projects designed with community organizations and research using oral histories and archeological investigations. Any student who wants to fulfill the minor in global studies should complete the necessary paperwork so the minor appears on their transcript.
