Languages, Literatures and Cultures



Why study Arabic?

  • Travel to the Middle East
  • Work as an interpreter
  • Learn about another culture
  • Study Islamic texts in their original language

Language students are uniquely situated to take on the challenges and opportunities that globalization offers, able to understand, appreciate, and critically analyze the perspectives of cultures other than their own. Arabic Language courses offer students the opportunity to acquire or advance communication skills in the Arabic language. The classroom experience is complemented by extensive use of the Language Learning Center, a state-of-the-art technological facility that provides software and other instructional material, as well as Dish International TV and SCOLA programming for student use in support of their program of study.

Note: Although students may not major or minor in Arabic at this time, Arabic language courses may be used to satisfy the College's Language Requirement.
