Which languages are offered?

Our Languages Less Commonly Taught vary from year to year.  Not all courses are offered every term.  Search the Carleton Central and/or the Public Class Schedule to find out which courses are being offered during the semester you are interested in.

“Languages Less Commonly Taught” are listed under the course code “LANG” on Carleton Central.  In order to find it, search for a category called “Language Studies”.  But when you register, make sure you choose the correct section because each section refers to a different language.

Anishinaabemowin is a member of the Algonquian language family and is the third most commonly spoken Indigenous language in Canada after Cree and Inuktitut. Spoken with some variation by a number of tribes (Algonquin, Ojibwe, Chippewa, and Odawa), then language was used historically as a trade language throughout the Great Lakes and surrounding river systems.
