The French minor is an excellent choice of study, combining love of this foreign language with courses in culture,  literature and business to help prepare students for an exciting and challenging career. By taking French classes at SMWC, you will not only learn a new language but also study the rich culture linked to this foreign language.

Learning how to speak French will give you a competitive edge in the job market. With the increasingly global economy, many American companies are doing business with French-speaking countries. The U.S. is one of the leading foreign investors in France. French companies also own or have a major investment in more than 2,800 companies in the United States, employing at least 550,000 people. 

Combined with a minor in business, journalism, education or art, French classes can help students to enhance their professional and academic opportunities.
