Every language deserves a spotlight.

The Critical Languages Program offers less commonly taught languages (LCTLs) which are not available in traditional departments or formats at the University of Arizona. See our current list of languages on the right side of this page, or request a language.

About the courses

All basic language courses emphasize speaking and aural comprehension at the elementary and intermediate levels while a writing component is incorporated at the advanced level. Languages offered vary from semester to semester and year to year, depending upon student demand. See how to register for CLP courses. CLP courses can fulfill your degree language requirement and can also be applied to a minor in Intercultural Studies.
