Graduate programs and employers increasingly seek candidates with language and cultural skills. These skills are particularly important in Michigan, given its proximity to Canada, where French is an official language and used in the domains of commerce, education, administration, and other industries. The Undergraduate Certificate in Practical French provides students with the ability to read, write, listen, and speak in the past, present, and future; carry out basic tasks necessary to everyday life in a Francophone country; describe people and things; understand and express opinions; and understand the main points of various media. Students also gain knowledge about cultural differences and practices that allow them to better understand and function within French and Francophone cultures.
Admission requirements for this program are satisfied by the general requirements for undergraduate admission to the University. The program shall be open to regularly admitted Wayne State University undergraduate students who are in good academic standing, as well as students who have previously earned a baccalaureate level degree at Wayne State or another accredited institution.
The Conversational and Professional French Undergraduate Certificate requires the completion of a minimum of 12 credits. All coursework must be completed in accordance with the regulations of the University and the College governing undergraduate scholarship.
