Currently, the Arabic Program offers first year Arabic during the Fall semester (Arabic 121) and second semester first year Arabic in the Spring semester (Arabic 122). If you are interested in learning Arabic, you are advised to start during the Fall semester and move up levels. We also offer Intermediate Arabic (Arabic 221 during the Fall semester and Arabic 222 during the Spring semester) and Advanced Arabic (Arabic 331 during the Fall semester and Arabic 332 during the Spring semester).
Aside from Arabic Language courses, we offer Arab Culture/Literature/Film as MFLL courses (at the 200 and 300 levels) such as MFL300: Global Texts and Cultures: Contemporary Arab Realities taught by Professor Douja Mamelouk.
