Rapidly develop your Wolof language skills through online learning.
Wolof in Senegal holds the status of a lingua franca for the great majority of the population and is key to understanding Senegalese culture and realities. In fact, it is spoken by more than 70 percent of Senegalese citizens of diverse ethnic backgrounds.
This program will be delivered through a three-credit online course that is designed to introduce beginning learners to Wolof through in-class interaction, assignments, music, art, poetry, and other forms of online media.
In addition to this online course, SIT is also offering a three-week, supplementary, intensive Wolof Language J-term immersion program in Senegal.
The following syllabi are representative of this program. Because courses develop and change over time to take advantage of dynamic learning opportunities, actual course content will vary from term to term.
Please expand the sections below to see detailed course information, including course codes, credits, overviews, and syllabi.
The tuition for this online internship program is $1,080. Financial aid may apply. Contact your study abroad office or SIT Admissions for more information.
