For graduation, students must have a minimum GPA of 6.00 computed on all 4.0 credits in the option. Students are required to complete a minimum 0.5 credit on an exchange, Explore Program (or other letter of permission), in Quebec or in a French speaking country in order to complete the option. Students wishing to complete this requirement outside of Quebec are required to have the placement approved by the Dean of Brantford. Students completing the French Teachable Option are excluded from completing the French minor.

Additional Information

  1. Students should be aware that some of these courses have prerequisites. Although these prerequisites may be waived by the department administering the course, it is the responsibility of the student to make such arrangements.
  2. The Brantford Campus offers only two general degrees: a BA without a designation, and a BA in Contemporary Studies. No further designation (major, option or minor) is awarded with these degrees.

Students who have graduated from a French secondary school, French Immersion high school, or have completed Grade 12 French AP level 4 should seek academic advising regarding courses with exclusions in the option.
