The Arabic program offers students dynamic learning opportunities both in and out of the classroom, and supports students interested in broadening their studies.
- In small group sessions, students studying Arabic have the opportunity to practice the language with an Arabic speaking foreign language assistant (FLA). The FLAs bring textbooks to life with interactive activities aimed at reinforcing classroom lessons, while simultaneously offering students a direct connection to the contemporary culture of the FLA’s native country.
- Study abroad opportunities give students the chance to improve their language proficiency and cultural awareness through full-immersion in an Arabic speaking country.
- Offered through the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies, students may pursue a degree in Middle Eastern Studies, which combines various disciplines such as political science, history, and religious studies.
