African Languages at Oregon

On campus we offer 3 years of Swahili and 3 years of Arabic, taught in a traditional 5 hours per week, 5 credit format. Swahili and Arabic courses will satisfy the university’s 2-year BA foreign language requirement.

The UO also offers opportunities for self-study, with the assistance of native speakers, in languages such as Akan, Wolof and Bamana/Dyula through the Yamada Language Center. Information is available from the Yamada Language Center; telephone (541) 346-4011.
