The Anderson Language Technology Center (ALTEC) supports language learning for language students at the University of Colorado. At ALTEC, students can improve their language skills by watching foreign films, listening to practice recordings, and more. The ALTEC facilities include computers for foreign language students to write in their language, multi-media classrooms with state of the art equipment, and a library of over 3000 films from around the world. ALTEC sponsors the Foreign Language Technology Program (FLTP), a series of non-credit workshops for graduate students and faculty on how to incorporate technology into foreign language teaching and learning. In addition, ALTEC also administers Foreign Language Classes for Faculty and Staff. We are located on the first floor of Hellems, just south of the Norlin Quad.
The East Asian Collection is housed in two locations in Norlin Library. Reference materials, current periodicals and newspapers, highly used multi-volume sets, microfilm collections and CD ROM collections are housed in Norlin's second floor Research & Instruction area. Monographs and bound periodicals are shelved by call number in Norlin Basement.
The East Asian Collection was established in 1989 in order to support the teaching and research needs of the Department of Asian Languages and Civilizations, as well as other East Asian programs on campus, and to make available the East Asian language materials to all users for their teaching, research, and recreation.
The Department of Asian Languages and Civilizations was established at the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1982 as the Department of Oriental Languages and Literatures. Steadily expanding its offerings in Chinese and Japanese, the unit became the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations in 1994 and, with the addition of new Asian language programs during the first decade of the twenty-first century, adopted the current designation of Asian Languages and Civilizations (ALC) in 2008.
The Department offers Bachelor’s degrees in Chinese and Japanese and beginning and intermediate courses in Arabic, Farsi, Hindi/Urdu, Indonesian, and Korean. At the graduate level, the Department has Master’s degree programs in Chinese and Japanese as well as joint BA/MA programs in Chinese and Japanese. Graduate offerings also include Dual MA Programs in either Chinese or Japanese and History or Religious Studies. A PhD program in Chinese and Japanese is now accepting applications.
The mission of the Office of International Education (OIE) is to actively promote international and intercultural understanding and to enrich the academic and cultural environment of CU-Boulder by facilitating the exchange of people and ideas. OIE brings CU to the world and the world to CU.
