These courses introduce students to Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, still spoken by more than 1 million people in central Mexico. The courses are taught by native-language speakers from the Instituto de Docencia e Investigación Etnológica de Zacatecas (IDIEZ) in Mexico through a distance-learning format. Knowledge of Spanish is not required but is helpful as the native language instructors present grammatical explanations in Spanish.
Students can complete the BA language requirement and the language requirement for the Latin American Studies Major with Nahuatl. Please see the Latin American advisor for information on how these courses will fulfill requirements for the Latin American Studies Major and Minor.
