Courses

All C-LAC sections are divided according to language, but the actual C-LAC sections offered will vary from semester to semester depending on the primary courses to which they are tied. View a list of upcoming C-LAC sections.

All students registered in the primary and cross-listed courses to which a C-LAC section is attached (regardless of the section number), and who have the required language ability level (see below) will be able to register for the C-LAC section. Also, any students who have taken those courses in the past and have a certain proficiency in the target language will be able to register in the associated C-LAC sections if they wish.

In the case of less commonly taught languages (everything but Spanish, French and German), some exceptions could be made to allow students into the corresponding C-LAC sections even if they are not registered in the main course or they have not taken the course in the past. This will be done on a case by case basis, and will require the permission of the C-LAC coordinator.

Cultures and Language Across the Curriculum students should also have attained COM-2 or intermediate proficiency in the target language in order to sign up for a C-LAC section. Those who have not but are willing and able to manage the class should obtain permission from the C-LAC Coordinator. All C-LAC sections will meet twelve times over the semester, each lasting approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. To warrant credit, classes need to have around 15 hours of contact time, though a few meetings may be replaced by online discussions, primarily in Blackboard but also in chat-board discussions or blogs.
