French Language and Culture Focus

Self-designed degrees at Antioch are already unique, but future employers benefit from knowing what areas of focus students have skills and specialization in. Antioch offers a French Language Focus with the following required elements:

  1. An OPI in which French students achieve the Intermediate-High rating or better.
  2. Any 2 non-capstone face-to-face courses at the 300 level.
  3. The Capstone course (340) taken during an immersion coop.
  4. A Capstone Presentation for the broader campus community delivered in the term after the immersion co-op.

Incoming students with limited prior experience in the language they choose to study at Antioch typically require 27 credit hours (7 courses over 3 years) to achieve the Language Focus.
