Swahili

Centuries of communication between inhabitants of Africa’s east coast and Arabic-speaking traders helped shape Swahili, a lingua franca in Kenya, Congo, Tanzania and Uganda and spoken by 200 million people worldwide.

The Swahili curriculum at the University of San Francisco combines communication basics with an analysis of Waswahili culture. Students receive individual attention from professors who have mastered one of the world’s most diverse languages. The following Swahili classes fulfill the USF foreign language requirement:

SWAH 101 - First Semester Swahili (4)

The course includes a mandatory one-hour weekly group conversation class with a tutor for nine weeks of the semester outside of the class meeting time.

SWAH 102 - Second Semester Swahili (4)

This course is a continuation of SWAH 101 - First Semester Swahili. It includes a mandatory one-hour weekly group conversation class with a tutor for nine weeks of the semester outside of the class meeting time. You must complete SWAH 101 to enroll.

SWAH 201 - Third Semester Swahili (4)

Swahili 201 is a 4-credit course designed for students who have already taken Swahili 102.
