LANGUAGES AT PENN
Welcome to the African Language Program of the African Studies Center at the University
of Pennsylvania. The main goal of the program is to provide courses in African
languages and cultures to undergraduate and graduate students at Penn and the
consortium colleges of Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore, as well as for other
neighboring colleges and universities. |
African language courses are offered
from elementary through advanced levels, and they are taught by native speakers
who are trained in communicative language teaching.
African languages can
be used to fulfill a language requirement and to complete an undergraduate minor
or major in African Studies. African language study can also prepare students
for research in Africa, and for Study Abroad programs in Ghana, Senegal, and Kenya.
Students of Yoruba, Swahili and Zulu can also participate in a federally-funded
Group Project Abroad in Nigeria, Tanzania, or South Africa to further enhance
their language competency in a country where that language is widely spoken.
