Languages across the Curriculum (LxC)
Welcome to Languages Across the Curriculum (LxC) at Binghamton University. LxC is a Global Learning Initiatives curricular enrichment program that provides students with the opportunity to meaningfully apply their existing language skills in courses outside of language departments.
When any course offered by the university "partners" with LxC, students can either explore themes and issues from that course in languages other than English, or investigate and compare issues from cross-cultural perspectives.
With LxC, students do not learn a language rather they learn how to engage their existing language abilities to enhance and deepen their knowledge about any topic. In short, it is about using language to learn about the world.
Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC)
LxC is part of a broader movement for Languages Across the Curriculum. You may hear it referred to as LAC, FLAC, and more recently CLAC. Binghamton University is an active member of the CLAC Consortium.
