Academic Minors in the Department of Romance Languages

The Department offers concentrations and minors in French, Italian, and Spanish. We remind you that you may concentrate or minor in a Romance language, but not both.

When combined with study in another field, knowledge of a Romance language will open doors to a wide variety of career and educational opportunities. Today, learning of other languages, peoples, and cultures is not only useful, it is imperative.

Academic minors in Romance Languages and Literatures are not open to students with any concentration or any other academic minor in Romance Languages and Literatures.

Students wishing to pursue an academic minor must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with the department's designated  advisor. Appointments are scheduled online: https://webapps.lsa.umich.edu/advappts/AA_StuSelfSvc1.aspx?ctgy=RLL or at the department office, 4108 Modern Languages Building, (734) 764-5344.
