The Program African & African American Studies at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications to its 2012 Summer Program in Senegal: May 31-July 10, 2012. The program has been revised and offers two tracks.
This program is designed for students who want to build conversational French language skills OR acquire Wolof language skills, learn more about West Africa, and experiment with field research. Dakar, Senegal provides the perfect opportunity to explore themes in African and Francophone studies because of its geographical location and unique history.
Students will receive 6 credits for the program: All students will receive 3 units for a Senegalese civilization course. Students may then choose take 3 units of French Conversational Fluency OR Introductory Wolof. In addition to the courses, there are pre-arranged study trips to cities outside of Dakar and students will complete a small research project. The cost of the program is $4000 plus airfare. The price includes room and board, tuition, excursions, and course materials. For more information, contact Wilmetta Toliver-Diallo (firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-935-7879).
