Arabic Studies (Minor)

The minor program in Arabic studies provides students with instruction in Modern Standard Arabic as well as Arab culture and literature. Students who successfully complete the prescribed coursework of the Arabic minor are expected to be able to communicate effectively in Arabic and interact with native speakers of the language. Students will be able to communicate in Arabic in the other two areas of language acquisition as well, reading and writing, through reading authentic material in Arabic and writing paragraphs in Modern Standard Arabic.

Literature courses expand students' knowledge in Arabic, the Middle East and Islamic culture and civilization. Students of all academic disciplines doing research or seeking employment in areas related to the Middle East or other parts of the Arab world will find the minor in Arabic highly beneficial.

Students are encouraged to participate in a study abroad program to enhance their education and overall minor experience. Students should visit for more information.
