Elementary Yoruba II

One semester of Yoruba or Swahili can count as an SCA faculty elective for the Africana and SCA majors/minors if taught by SCA faculty.

Yoruba is a language spoken in West Africa by approximately 20 million people. This is a continuation of Yoruba I, in which students learned about the fundamentals of Yoruba, primarily focusing on the language, and including the people and their cultural practices. A minimum of one semester of Yoruba or its equivalent experience is required for Yoruba II. The main objective of Yoruba II is to further sharpen the Yoruba linguistic acuity that the students acquired at the introductory level. The course emphasizes spoken and written Yoruba as used in present-day West Africa in various cultural contexts. This course is valuable for learners who work or plan to work as foreign language experts, travelers, guides, diplomats, linguists, anthropologists, etc.
