Student Experience

This group was formed in the Fall semester of 2006 as a joint venture between the Linguistics department and the African Studies department at Indiana University-Bloomington in order to encourage the use and study of all African languages. The primary goal of this group is to bring together students and speakers of African languages, as well as those with a more general interest on the IU campus. One of our goals is to raise awareness of the programs and courses offered at IU to individuals interested in learning more about this topic.

We hope that this group will supplement the many great opportunities for learning African languages already offered at Indiana University. As a community of African language speakers, members of the African Languages Club at IU, can gain valuable knowledge from one another by conversing about their experiences, concerns, and successes in this field of study.

Student organizations

There are a number of other student organizations and clubs on campus that may be of interest to students pursuing African Studies. For example, the African Students Association, the African American Arts Institute, the Muslim Student Association, and Dança Kizomba Club. You might also participate in the Bridges Early Language Program or volunteer in local schools and at IU as an outreach ambassador for African Studies.
