The Program in African Studies offers a four-term sequence of language instruction in Swahili. Completion of all four terms of the sequence will satisfy the University language requirement. Occasionally, more advanced language courses will be offered. Speaking, reading, and writing Swahili, as well as the cultural context of the East African nations where Swahili is spoken, are emphasized by the program. AFS encourages students to consider study abroad during the school year or the summer to complement their language study. Princeton offers intensive intermediate Swahili instruction during the summer at the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. For more information, contact Rebecca Aguas.
Courses include Elementary Swahili, SWA 101; Elementary Swahili II, SWA 102; Intermediate Swahili, SWA 105; and Intermediate Swahili II, SWA 107.
