Center for Language Studies

Center for Language Studies

The CLS engages with faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in order to foster a community of like-minded individuals interested in exploring other cultures, communities and traditions in a way that is only possible through a deep knowledge of their languages.

The Center for Language Studies promotes the teaching and learning of all languages on campus. Come join us for workshops on language pedagogy and technology, on professional development for graduate students, for international film series or to practice languages you've once learned. We are here for you on the SciLi 6th floor!
World Languages and Cultures (WLC) offers a variety of languages including American Sign Language, Arabic, English for International Teaching Assistants, Hindi, Nahuatl, Persian, Swahili, Turkish, Urdu and Yoruba. You can find WLC faculty offices and classrooms at 195 Angell Street.

Languages and Careers

Regardless of what field you may want to pursue, or concentration, whether it’s in the STEM field or humanities, always having the study of a second language and literature and culture as part of your portfolio can only help.
