Languages Across the Curriculum

LAC provides an avenue for students to apply language skills in fields not traditionally the focus of modern language department curricula. Students learn the vocabulary, terminology, and concepts used in academic or professional disciplines in the target language and also read from scholarly or professional works published in that language.
