FREN 430 - French Capstone Experience


This course is designed to be a culminating experience in which the student will demonstrate skills and knowledge garnered from his/her experience within the French program. The student will develop a linguistic, cultural, or pedagogical strand from the major to be presented orally in a forum of peers and French faculty. The student will also submit a written report on hard copy and disk. FREN 430 is required for French majors in the final semester of their senior year. Students select a supervisor from the French faculty; override permission required. The student will consult with the faculty supervisor on project conception and will meet with the supervisor a minimum of five times throughout the semester. The project may consist of a research paper or one of the following formats accompanied by a written report: 1) a public presentation and/or discussion; 2) a workshop involving other students, faculty, and/or interested non-students; 3) prepared pedagogical materials; 4) a translation; or 5) other (as approved by supervisor). An interdisciplinary study may be done in consultation with a French faculty member and faculty from outside the French program.

Prerequisite: completion of all other coursework in the major with the exception of courses being taken concurrently with Capstone.
Credits: 2 hours
NOTE: This course counts toward the 63-hour Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) graduation requirement.
