It is possible to do a Minor in French at Grenfell College, but you must plan it carefully as there are three first-year courses to complete. Students wishing to complete a French Minor must complete 24 credit hours (8 courses) in French as outlined below.
- A maximum of 6 credit hours (2 courses) at the first-year level (ie only 1501 and 1502 can count toward the Minor)
- A maximum of 15 credit hours (5 courses) at the second-year level.
- French 3100 or 3101.
Education Students: Students planning on completing Primary/Elementary Education should note that having the equivalent of a Minor in French represents a few additional courses to what would be required for a Focus Area, but having a Minor represents a more profound level of French. Primary/Elementary Education students are also encouraged to consider the new Education program that allows students to pursue an undergraduate degree in a discipline before doing a one-year education degree. For more information, see a member of faculty.

In addition, students hoping to specialize in French may want to consider the Frecker program in St. Pierre during their second year of study (see Studies).
