The minor in French consists of a minimum of 15 units taught in French, nine units of which must be in upper division French courses. One course taught in English may apply to the minor.
Courses in the minor may not be counted toward the major, but may be used to satisfy preparation for the major and general education requirements, if applicable. A minimum of six upper division units must be completed in residence at San Diego State University.
High School Equivalents
High school foreign language courses may be used for purposes of placement in college courses and may be counted toward meeting the language requirement in various majors. These high school courses will not count as college credit toward graduation.
Secondary school language courses can be used as follows:
- The first two years of high school level language count as the equivalent of the first semester of a college level course.
- The first three years of high school level language count as the equivalent of the first two college semesters.
- Four years of high school level language count as the equiva-lent of three college semesters or five college quarters, thus fulfilling the language requirement.
