Welcome to Languages Across the Curriculum (LAC) at Auburn University.

Languages Across the CurriculumLAC is a multidisciplinary program, LAC or Languages Across the Curriculum, which underscores the internationalization of courses, proficiency in a second language,and cross-departmental partnerships. Its goal is to prepare students for the cross-cultural and multi-lingual demands of a global economy, by increasing their abilities to communicate in a second language within their professional fields and by facilitating their understanding of a variety of topics from a different perspective. As of Summer 2012, our LAC program is part of the CLAC, a consortium of leading universities hosting LAC programs.  Visit the CLAC website for more information.
