Hamline offers students interested in French both beginning and intermediate classes. More advanced students seeking the minor or the major are encouraged to pursue opportunities for advanced study available to them through the ACTC.
French may be used to complement majors in such fields as anthropology, biology, communications studies, global studies, management and economics, and international relations. It may also prepare students for Study Abroad.
Language Placement Exam
The Modern Languages Department encourages all first year, transfer and returning students, to take the placement exam before registering for their first Hamline language class.
This exam takes 10-25 minutes on average and test results are available on-line within a few minutes of completing the exam. The test results indicate clearly which appropriate level students should register for, including 1st (French 1110), 2nd (1120), 3rd (3210), and 4th (3220). Students who score higher than the 4th level would be advised to take advanced-level courses in French offered by the ACTC.
