KU Program in African Languages

The Department of African and African-American Studies at the University of Kansas regularly offers Arabic, Kiswahili, Wolof, and Haitian Creole as its featured languages of Africa and the Diaspora. The Kansas African Studies Center endeavors to promote the study of additional African languages such as Somali and Amharic as well. Faculty at the University of Kansas who possess competency in other African languages may be available to supervise individual language instruction. If you have an interest in studying an African language, contact the program coordinators below or stop by the Center in 201 Bailey Hall. You can reach us at kasc@ku.edu or (785) 864-3745.
