Primary Instructor:

This course assumes higher proficiency in the written and spoken. It enables students to gain a deeper understanding of the language through reading, analyzing and interpreting complex thoughts, issues and ideas in literature written in Kiswahili by African writers.

Students perform other linguistically advanced tasks, such as: expressing their feelings, seeking the opinion of others, giving advice and describing their health. As with the earlier courses, culture is introduced and incorporated through lectures, field exercises and interactions. The student engages in a major research subject conducted in the language community.

Course Requirements:

Regular attendance is essential. Participation in class includes asking and answering questions in Swahili, initiating discussion, role playing, and other situational activities. The final grade is based on class participation, journal entries, homework assignments, unit exams, a mid-term written and oral test, and a final written and oral examination.

Intended Audience:

Undergraduate majors and minors in CAAS, especially those engaged in the academic study of African/East African cultures as well as students engaged in similar study in a variety of other programs and departments such as Anthropology, History, Sociology, Political Science, and the RC.
