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. It's spoken by more than 70 percent of Senegalese citizens.

This program will be delivered through a three-credit online course and a three-credit immersion course in Dakar, Senegal. Although they may be taken separately, the courses are designed to complement each other to give students an in-depth knowledge of the Wolof language and understanding of the culture and values of which it is the vehicle.

During the in-country portion of the course, you will visit the rural area of Popenguine to practice Wolof with the local population. You will be introduced to the intercultural and religious pluralism of this region as well as the women-led fight for the preservation of the environment. Popenguine is known for the peaceful coexistence among Muslim, Christian, and traditional religions.
