Department of African Languages and Literature

 

The Department's Mission is to achieve and maintain academic and scholarly excellence in both research and teaching of African Languages and literature. With African culture as its wider research area, the Department's activities are therefore integral to the cultural development of the nation at large particularly in areas of language and cultural knowledge. <br> Both the Department's academic staff and students consider indigenous linguistic and literary knowledge in its various forums as significant contributory factors to the nation's sustainable development and therefore are committed to improve the Department's activities in this respect. <br> Although its aim is to end up teaching all languages of Zimbabwe as well as including some other African languages outside Zimbabwe, at present the Department is focusing on Shona and Ndebele which have a biggest number of speakers. The two languages especially Shona are widely spoken in all provinces in Zimbabwe.
