All French education majors should remain in close contact with their advisors, both in the Education and Modern Languages and Cultures departments, so that both your required French and education courses are taken on a timely basis. For example, the three-week “block” experience, which takes place in a school environment, should be scheduled on the semester that the French education major takes ED 338 (Methods of Teaching Modern Language), which is offered once a year in the Fall Semester and is taught by a member of the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all required courses and field experiences are completed in a timely and satisfactory manner.
