BYU Humanities Clubs and Student Associations Fall Semester 2021

Want to make friends, have fun, and practice the language you are learning—most importantly make professional connections, and open doors to your future? You should consider joining a Brigham Young University Humanities Club! Check out the clubs below and visit our Instagram "Clubs" story highlight to watch videos from current club members. Then go to to join.

American Sign Language Club

Have fun practicing your sign language, learning ASL grammar, and expanding your vocabulary in the BYU ASL Club. Meet new people while learning a new language. Our club offers a wide variety of activities: vocabulary, fluency, Deaf history, Deaf culture games, and appreciation of Deaf community speakers, movies, and information. We have deaf panels where the students get to ask deaf students questions about sign language; we have learned church signs in the weeks preceding General Conference.

Arabic Club

The Arabic club helps the BYU community get better acquainted with our Arab students. We address misconceptions that people may have about Arabs and raise awareness about the rich culture, religions, and politics of the Arab Middle East.

Art History Association

The Art History Association helps BYU art history majors succeed by connecting them with other Art History students, faculty members, and art resources in the BYU/Provo community. The Art History Association's venues and events provide professional connections and open doors to your future. We also help members of the art history major connect with other members of the Department of Comparative Arts and Letters and the College of Humanities. We hope to introduce the BYU/Provo community to the discipline of art history and to promote the arts in Utah.

BYU Chinese Club

The BYU Chinese Club serves our non-native Chinese-speaking community as the Department of Asian and Near Eastern Languages's official Chinese academic organization. Join one of our four committees that hold language activities promoting Chinese learning and culture. Make professional connections and open doors to your future.

BYU Italian Club

The Italian Club promotes Italian language and culture through fun cultural activities for BYU students and the local Provo community.

BYU Council of Teachers of English

The BYU Council of Teachers of English is a support group for English teaching majors. Make professional connections with your peers and gain new opportunities.

BYU Scandinavian Club

The BYU Scandinavian Club vastly extends the classroom of all BYU Scandinavian courses with cultural activities, events, and traditions in a venue where students and fellow Scandinavians can immerse themselves in the epic culture and language.

BYU Translation and Localization Club

The BYU Translation and Localization Club gives students the experience, knowledge, and skills that will prepare them to work in one of the world's fastest-growing industries. Come and expand your network of professional connections.

Comparative Literature Student Association

The Comparative Literature Students’ Association (CLSA), founded in 1988, promotes excellence among comparative literature majors and other interested students at BYU. The CLSA organizes lectures and discussion groups, presents the Scholar of the Year award, and hosts other events that reflect the unique perspective and tools of comparative literature. The CLSA helps students master literary scholarship and appreciation for all artistic endeavors.

English Society

The English Society provides extracurricular social interaction and meaningful camaraderie for BYU English students. It also supplements BYU English Department course instruction with additional intellectual interactions between interested students and faculty, helping students to be more successful in their academic pursuits. The English Society fosters English-related service and educational activities that promote Christ-centered living for those studying English at BYU and for the community at large.

French Club

The French Club analyzes and compares the cultures and practices that create French and Francophone identities. It also fosters friendship, enjoyment, learning, and understanding of the French culture—resulting in lifelong learning and continued contact with French studies.

German Club

The German Club provides cultural experiences with German and German-speaking societies. Weekly activities include German Films at 7 on Wednesday nights and language practice and games at 5 on Thursdays, both in B003 JFSB. We also hold larger monthly activities.

Linguistics Student Society

The Linguistics Society provides learning, research, and job-related opportunities for students taking English Language or Linguistics classes. Through fun social activities, students learn more about linguistics at the college and around the world and make friendships with students in their same field of interest.

Phi Lambda Beta—Portuguese National Honor Society

Phi Lambda Beta promotes, fosters, and recognizes academic achievement in Luso-Afro-Brazilian studies at BYU.

Philosophy Club

The BYU Philosophy Club provides a comfortable forum to cultivate relationships between students and faculty, increase awareness of the major on campus, and explore and discover philosophical works and their meaningful application to our lives as we seek to live, work, and serve within our communities.

Sigma Delta Pi

Sigma Delta promotes the Hispanic language and culture through engaging social, cultural, educational, and professional activities.

The Japanese Student Association

The Japanese Student Association gives career assistance and guidance to both Japanese native and non-native students looking for work in fields related to or in Japan. We do this by teaching and practicing interviewing, networking, and resume building skills. We also invite alumni and recruiters to talk to students about their experiences and current career opportunities.
