Connecticut College established the Foreign Languages Across the Curriculum (FLAC) program to provide students in a variety of English-language courses the opportunity to participate in an optional section taught in a foreign language. This program helps bring diverse perspectives to a broad range of subjects.

All of the foreign language sections are offered on an optional basis for an additional course credit. 

View the Language Study at Connecticut College brochure to learn more about the 11 languages, and linguistics, Language Fellows, the Language and Culture Center, and more. View the College Catalog for programs of study and full descriptions of these FLAC courses.
