Sharing Languages

Karma photo hero_0.jpg

Shared language courses are synchronous courses that combine face-to-face and distance instruction. Students from partner institutions use videoconferencing technology to join live language classes meeting on another campus. This enables students to learn languages not offered at their home institutions and allows instructors of less commonly-taught languages (LCTLs) to expand enrollments and strengthen their programs.


The University of Chicago is a member of three partnerships that allow for course sharing:

  • Big Ten Academic Alliance
  • Domestic Exchange Program (Ivy Plus)
  • Chicago Metropolitan Exchange Program
