Arabic Language & Culture

The Arabic curriculum continues to offer a solid foundation in Modern Standard Arabic and valuable cultural exposure to the richness and diversity which exist across the Arab and Islamic regions of today’s globalized human society.

In addition to courses in Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced Arabic, students may pursue electives such as Modern Arabic Literature and Arab Women Writers.

Correlate in Arabic Language and Culture

Students undertaking the correlate sequence must complete 6 units. All students must take AFRS 100 - Introduction to Africana Studies. In addition, students must complete two Arabic language courses at the 200 level (AFRS 207 and AFRS 208) and two at the 300 level (AFRS 307, AFRS 308, or AFRS 311). Students must also take AFRS 205, or in consultation with the correlate advisor, another approved course. Only one credit from study abroad and/or summer intensive Arabic language programs may count toward the Arabic Language and Culture correlate.
