Non BYU Students

Evening Classes Offered

The  Center for Language Studies supports the College of Humanities by augmenting the list of languages taught by other departments. Not all classes are taught at every level every semester. (Please see the Class Schedule for a listing of classes currently offered).
Some of the languages have their own "teaching area" (where you will find them in the drop-down menu during registration), while others are listed under "FLANG" (for Foreign Language). The "teaching area" abbreviation for each language is listed below in parenthesis.
