What You'll Study

The joint major program (JMP), authorized by the Academic Senate for a pilot period of six years, permits students to major in both Computer Science and French. Students completing the JMP receive a B.A.S. (Bachelor of Arts and Sciences).

To graduate with a joint major in Computer Science and French, students must complete a minimum of 46 units of coursework in French in addition to the Computer Science requirements for the joint major. These 46 units may not be used towards any other major or minor. Courses applied to the major must be taken for a letter grade, and a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or better must be achieved in each course. Relevant courses from other departments or programs may also earn credit toward the major with the prior consent of the Chair of Undergraduate Studies. To enroll in all FRENCH courses taught in French at or above the 130-level, students must have successfully completed FRENLANG 124, Mastering Advanced French Grammar: Grammar through Contemporary Literature and Culture, or successfully tested above this level through the Language Center.

Because the JMP is new and experimental, changes to procedures may occur; students are advised to check the relevant section of the bulletin periodically.
