During the months of July and August, two consecutive sessions of intensive Arabic language is offered as four-week modular courses of Modern Standard Arabic (the written language). Elementary and intermediate levels are offered over the summer and students are required to complete a placement exam in advance. Our Elementary I is for students who have absolutely no prior knowledge of the Arabic language, and Elementary II is for students that have already studied the Arabic alphabet. Intermediate I is for students interested in building their grammar skills.
In the fall and spring semesters, we offer both Modern Standard/Literary Arabic and Spoken Arabic at all levels.
