Business French Minor

Requirements

The business French minor consists of a minimum of 18 credits taken in one of two tracks. The curriculum includes courses in business administration for non-business students and courses in the practical and professional use of the French language as well as understanding of Francophone culture for business students. Students must complete at least 9 upper-division (numbered 300 and above) credits in the minor in residence at UWM. The College requires that students attain at least a 2.0 GPA on all credits in the minor attempted at UWM. In addition, students must attain a 2.0 GPA on all minor credits attempted, including any transfer work.
