Kenya’s geographic and cultural diversity make it a microcosm of the African continent. It includes hot coastal plains, vast plateaus, Africa’s largest lake and highest mountain and hundreds of miles of the great Rift Valley. Home to more than 45 tribes, significant European and South Asian minorities and a population of 28 million speaking dozens of languages, Kenya shares with its neighbors the challenges of forging a multi-ethnic, post-colonial nation. Most Kenyans are farmers or herders, yet the capital of Nairobi is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in East Africa and the base for many international and Kenyan organizations promoting development and social change.
The Intensive Swahili in Kenya program can be combined with the MSID Kenya semester or academic-year program for an extended experience abroad.
