Undergraduate Program in French and Francophone Studies
French and Francophone Studies promotes not just language proficiency but also an understanding of Francophone culture. Students who arrive at Carnegie Mellon with previous language experience and/or who have high Advanced Placement, an International Baccalaureate, or internal placement exam scores will be able to begin taking courses toward the major or minor earlier in their undergraduate program and will also be able, should they desire, to complete an additional major. In all cases, progress toward the major will be accelerated by study abroad, which is recommended for all majors.
