Department of Modern Languages

The University of Mississippi



The Department of Modern Languages at the University of Mississippi now offers Swahili-language courses. We are very excited to have initiated instruction in an eleventh language program in our department.

A two-year sequence is currently available in the language (SWA 101, 102, 201, 202). Each course is three credits and the four courses taken consecutively may be used to satisfy the Liberal Arts foreign language requirement. Students can also pursue an undergraduate minor in Swahili. This minor requires the completion of 15 hours of coursework at the 200 level and above.

Stay tuned for additional information on the development of our new Swahili-language program.
