Why Study Somali?

Minnesota is home to one-third of all Somalis in the U.S., making it the largest Somali community in the country.  The majority live in Minneapolis and St. Paul as well as in several suburbs around Normandale.  Therefore, there is a community need/demand for individuals who are able to speak Somali and are interculturally competent.  The Somali language and culture courses at Normandale will prepare individuals to participate in diverse local and global communites and will benefit students across a wide range of disciplines such as education, healthcare, and law enforcement.  Click HERE for more details.
