SEALC-GETSEA Virtual Language Institute

Take a Southeast Asian language class via distance this Fall! Anyone is welcome to apply for and enroll in the courses listed below so long as they fulfill the specific requirements of the institution offering the language course.

The Southeast Asian Language Council (SEALC) and the Graduate Education and Training in Southeast Asian Studies (GETSEA) consortia are pleased to announce the launch of the SEALC-GETSEA Virtual Language Institute. The goal of this institute is to increase the visibility of accessible SEA language courses during the academic year for students nationwide, and in so doing support member institutions’ SEA language programs and the long-term viability of SEA studies in the United States.

Read below for more information on the virtual, synchronous course offerings of our member institutions, including how to apply and enroll at each individual institution. Interested individuals are responsible for contacting the institution directly for admission and enrollment. Institution-specific requirements must be met for admission and enrollment.

Students who are interested in applying for language tuition support during the academic year are invited to read more about our SEALC-GETSEA Language Tuition Awards initiative. Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year are due by July 8, 2022.

For more information on Less Commonly Taught Language courses offered at institutions nationwide (majority in-person, some distance format), visit the AAS Language Database.
