Panafrican Masterís and PhD Program in Applied Linguistics


The Pan-African Master’s and PhD Program in African Languages and Applied Linguistics, (PANMAPAL) is one of the core projects of ACALAN which started in 2006 in three Universities namely, University of Yaoundé 1, Cameroon, University of Cape Town, South Africa and Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia. Its aim is to train qualified linguists, language professionals, educators and other practitioners to become specialized in African languages and the application of relevant linguistic theory in the resolution of issues in relation to African languages.

Taking into account that the first phase of the project, which ended in June 2010, has trained a considerable number of students successfully in line with ACALAN’s mandate and goals, ACALAN is therefore seeking to expand the program across Africa.

The creation of research expertise through this Programme will make it easy for the implementation of the other ACALAN core projects.
