While it continues to emphasize conversational fluency and increased facility in reading and writing skills, this course introduces students to Swahili literature through which a survey on cultural aspects and more advanced grammar is undertaken. Students will be able to understand and analyze the main ideas and significant details of materials in Swahili such as a magazine articles, short stories, poetry, short novels, films, and plays illustrative of East African cultural issues, Swahili grammar, and development of expository writing. Ideally this course would be best taught in a Swahili speaking country.

A third year of Advanced Swahili Course which includes Swahili literature is offered either on campus or abroad in a Swahili speaking country.
