FR 216 - Introduction to French Studies

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: FR 201 . Students are prepared to take advanced literature classes. By reading and analyzing plays, poems, and short novels, students improve their ability to read and comprehend literary texts in French. To better understand the context in which the literary texts studied were written, the course also introduces students to literary history. Through vocabulary acquisition, introduction to basic literary terms and genres, grammar review, and analysis and discussion of literary themes, students improve their speaking, reading, writing, and analytical skills in French. Writing assignments are keyed to the course readings and are designed to teach students both American and French styles of analyzing and critiquing literary texts, as well as how to conduct secondary research.
