Language Training Center: Courses for College Credit

The information provided on this page is specifically for participants interested in receiving Concordia College undergraduate credit for courses offered by the Language Training Center.

The Concordia Language Training Center provides language and culture immersion programming exclusively for personnel within the U.S. Department of Defense. In the LTC program, students develop a greater understanding of global political, social, economic and environmental issues through intensive study of authentic target language materials. Through projects, papers, presentations and opportunities to collaborate with first-language speakers, participants develop intercultural communicative competence and target-language proficiency.

In addition to obtaining a certificate for training hours completed through a Concordia LTC session, students may register separately to earn either 3 or 4 Concordia College credits. These credits carry an additional fee and require submission of additional written work in the target language while enrolled in the course. Written work includes three or four short (two pages) polished discussions of topics studied in the course, and regular, less formal reflections on your cultural learning.
