Students outside the language building.


Do you know what algebra, sherbet, admiral, gazelle, lute, henna, safari, tariff, and Sahara mean? If you do, you already speak some Arabic! The language permeates much of the vocabulary of science, math and philosophy. As an Arabic student, you'll have the chance to explore the cultural and historical significance of the language while working toward fluency.

Why Study Arabic?

Currently, Arabic is considered a critical language. Studying it will give you insight into a culture with a rich history and will open career opportunities in the fields like military intelligence, international NGOs, airlines and international business. 



Arabic is an in-demand language. In addition to financial aid from our university, you can also apply for outside scholarships.
