Programs

Arabic

Arabic is the fifth most widely spoken language in the world and one of six official languages of the United Nations. The Arabic program gives students a strong foundation in Modern Standard Arabic, and offers a wide range of courses - taught in English - on modern and classical Arabic literatures, cinema, gender and other cultural topics.

In addition, the program sponsors or co-sponsors a diverse range of cultural events and activities throughout the academic year. Arabic may be taken either to fulfill a foreign language requirement, or as a major on its own. Thus students enrolled in Arabic language and culture classes come from a variety of backgrounds. The Arabic program works in close collaboration with other majors at the university, in particular the Middle Eastern Studies major.
