Welcome to the Emory College Language Center

The Emory College Language Center (ECLC) is dedicated to international education by promoting the teaching and learning of languages. We provide students with opportunities to experience and understand world cultures both on campus and beyond.

The Center was founded in 2000 to provide support for the teaching and learning of languages and cultures at Emory. Emory University's language departments teach 19 curricular languages. Our Center provides faculty and students with technology facilities and staff, language lab and classrooms, faculty consultation and development, lecture events, and online learning resources.

Working with the Emory Program in Linguistics we also support the needs of students learning Less-Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs) not currently taught in the curriculum, through the Structured Independent Language Study (SILS) program. The ECLC mission statement provides additional information about the role of the Language Center on campus.
