Language for Special Purposes

Each semester, the CLS offers opportunities for members of the Yale community to study a language for special purposes (LSP). In LSP courses, participants pursue language and culture study in specific disciplines, such as medicine, business, law, or other areas.

Although these courses do not currently translate to course credit, many Yale graduate and professional school students, administrators, staff, and others are nonetheless strongly motivated to pursue such forms of language study to satisfy specific career or professional needs.
