Abstract

Institutions of higher education have placed increasing importance on internationalising their curricula over the past 10 years. At Duke University, a private university in the southern United States, these efforts have led to a unique partnership between the Romance Studies Department and the Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) that focuses on a curriculum design based on the Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) model.
