MSU offers instruction in 30 African languages, representing all the major regions of Africa. Some languages are taught regularly in a classroom setting; many are on a tutorial basis. These are learner-oriented and on demand, and native speakers are recruited from the many African students in the MSU community to serve as tutors, supervised weekly by a faculty linguist. Classroom work may be supplemented by an advanced language laboratory and computer-assisted instruction.
Languages in bold are offered in a class mode; all others are on a tutorial basis.

FLAS fellowships are awarded to students enrolled in a program that combines the study of a modern foreign language with advanced training in international development studies (or in the international development aspects of professional or other fields of study).
