>> University of South Florida, Tampa campus. (Also where I
graduated with a BA in Geology.) If I've read everything correctly, the class is taught by the head of the foreign language department. That means that besides an academic interest, it also presents a big you-know-what to kiss for eventually applying for a master's in linguistics.<< LOL! Funny....
>> Unfortunately, it's only taught at level 1, which means no one
takes it as a foreign language requirement.<< Bummer.
>> It's a requirement or elective for many African- and African-American-
degrees and certificates (-Literature, -Politics, -Economics, -Studies, -History, etc.). There is also some interest because Tampa has a fairly sizeable community that practices Santeria and the Orisha traditions, and the "religious tongue" of Santeria is Yoruba.<< Neat!
