Boston Language Consortium
BOSTON COLLEGE – BOSTON UNIVERSITY – BRANDEIS UNIVERSITY – TUFTS UNIVERSITY
CROSS-REGISTRATION LANGUAGE PROGRAM
Beginning in Fall 2023, students at Tufts, Brandeis, BU, and BC may cross-register for one of the following introductory language courses.
American Sign Language at Tufts
- Introduction to American Sign Language and the Deaf Community: online, twice per week
Modern Irish/Gaelic at Boston College
- Introduction to Modern Irish: online, twice per week
Portuguese at Boston University
- First Semester Portuguese: in-person two days per week with one online session each week
Yiddish at Brandeis
- Beginning Yiddish: online, four days per week (Monday/Tuesday/Thursday will be synchronous and Wednesday asynchronous)
Each of the languages will be offered through the 4th semester so that students may progress in the language to fulfill language requirements. Some of the courses will offer special online or hybrid sections to reduce difficulties associated with travel across Boston.
About the Boston Consortium Cross-Registration Language Program:
This pilot project aims to increase study of important languages that, in some cases, are jeopardized by low enrollments. With enough interest, we hope to potentially expand to include other languages offered through the Boston Consortium.
