Background of the Department

The Department of Amharic Language and Literature grew out of the Department of English and was first established as a department under the Faculty of Education before this was restructured under the College of Social Sciences and Law.

As with all educational programmes, in order to operate in an effective manner, this Department requires many facilities. One of the fundamental demands would be a well-crafted curriculum scheme. The Department has met this by teaching courses based on a new curriculum designed to provide Bachelor of Arts degrees in Ethiopian Language(s) and Literature – Amharic.
