Across the Curriculum (LAC) is a strategy to integrate foreign language use throughout the curriculum. It facilitates the collaboration of faculty by bridging disciplinary boundaries, and it promotes the internationalization of course offerings. LAC encourages multicultural understanding and an appreciation of the place of different disciplines in a global context. It recognizes the importance of multilingualism in today’s society. Faculty and students learn how a discipline they have first studied in their native English is approached by different cultures and different linguistic codes.
Faculty members determine the most appropriate LAC model and level for their courses. For more information about the various models for LAC implementation, visit http://college.wfu.edu/spanishitalian/interdisciplinary-programs/.
