Bantu base Afrika: Language, Culture and Health

Summer B, 2016 – 15 credits

 Post-Apartheid South Africa is a rapidly developing middle-income country with a unique history, eleven official languages and a variety of significant and challenging health and development issues, all of which make it a stimulating place to experience and learn about multilingualism, development and health issues. Prof. Sam Clark from Sociology and Clarissa Surek-Clark from Linguistics will lead two distinct tracks to expose students to advanced topics on multilingualism and public health. Open to Honors and non-Honors students of all years.
