Meet Language Fellows

The Residential College in the Arts and Humanities (RCAH), in collaboration with the Graduate School at Michigan State University (MSU), offers a language fellowship program in undergraduate teaching and learning for MSU graduate students. Language fellows are enrolled in graduate programs in the Colleges of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Arts and Letters, Education, Communication Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Music, Natural Science, or Social Science.

Program Description

The RCAH provides its undergraduate students with opportunities to apply and strengthen their knowledge of world languages and cultures through a Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) program. Graduate students selected for this fellowship participate in different components of the CLAC Program; this includes:

  • Facilitating weekly immersion, project-based sessions in a world language for all levels of language learners (Integrated Language Options (ILOs))
  • Collaborating with RCAH faculty to be a guest speaker in RCAH courses
  • Participating in and lead weekly meetings with other RCAH language fellowship recipients, faculty, and staff
  • Designing and implementing research projects in areas such as needs assessment, materials development, instructional delivery, and program evaluation
  • Creating and coordinating CLAC events for RCAH students and the wider community
