About Marshallese Studies

21 years old, the Marshallese Studies courses are offered at the College of the Marshall Islands for the community, scholars, researchers, and anyone interested in learning about Marshallese Studies.

Over the course of its 21 years in the College, the Marshallese Studies has now become a stand-alone academic department. The Department now offers 10 Marshallese Studies courses and two new certificate programs, namely Marshallese Language Arts (MLA) and Marshallese Social Studies (MSS).
