The University of Utah sees language competency as an essential component of global citizenship and globalized education. With nearly 30,000 K-6 students enrolled in intensive dual language immersion and a rapidly growing population of heritage language speakers, Utah is a national leader in language education and research on language pedagogy centered at the Second Language Teaching and Research Center . The mission of the U’s language programs is to produce globally competent graduates with professional bilingual proficiency. We offer students many pathways for integrating language study into their education. 


The U’s Culture and Language Across the Curriculum (CLAC)program offers students the exciting opportunity to apply their proficiency in a second language to the study of academic content in such fields as Communication, History, Sociology, and Political Science, among others.


The U offers federally funded Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships. 

This program is open to students in any department who include language study in their course load.
