The Department of Modern Languages at The University of Mississippi will begin the offering of Swahili-language courses in the fall semester of 2014. We are very excited to initiate an eleventh language program in our department. A three-hour course in Swahili (SWA 101) will be offered in the fall semester, followed by SWA 102 in the spring of 2015, SWA 101 and SWA 201 in the fall of 2015 and SWA 102 and 202 in the spring of 2016. Students will be able to use SWA 201 and 202 to satisfy the College of Liberal Arts foreign language requirement. Stay tuned for additional information on the development of our new Swahili-language program.
