Come study an African language with us!

Come study an African language with us!

Partial scholarships available for students interested in studying either Amharic, Swahili, Yoruba, Zulu, or Igbo.

Summer African Language courses at UCLA offer the equivalent of one academic year of language instruction in eight weeks.   The courses immerse students in the languages and diverse cultures of Africa through authentic and contemporary materials including movies, music, literature, online resources, and LA's diaspora communities.

Enrollment is not restricted to students -- high school students, members of the community, and people interested in studying these languages can apply for enrollment.

Scholarships are available for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as California high school students interested in the intensive study of one of these languages.
