Courses on Language at Yale this Fall

Yale offers about 50 languages for study in the classroom, and many more through the DILS program at the CLS. With classes starting tomorrow, Aug. 27, and shopping period underway for the next two weeks, it’s a great time to decide on a new language to study.

There are also many courses you can take about Language (with a capital “L”)–the human condition of language, seen from all kinds of disciplinary lenses. Since these span many fields of study and majors on our campus, they may not be as visible, but are definitely worth pursuing if you’d like to deepen and contextualize your language study.

I’ve spent a little time in Yale’s Online Course Information system to see what offerings our campus might have for Fall 2014, and this is what I’ve found so far. Please leave a comment and/or contact me if you’d like to suggest any additions.
