Looking for a course? Check out our online brochure of courses in Classics and Mediterranean Studies (CAMS).


The minor in Arabic is designed to guide student understanding of the Arabic language and literature—through intermediate to advanced level proficiency classes—and Arab art, religious affiliations and practices, politics, trends, cultures, histories, and more. The minor  emphasizes language courses, as well as literature and culture courses in translation.

Students who complete the minor unlock a variety of job opportunities in health, technology and business sectors, especially because Arabic is the official language in more than 20 countries.

Minors are complementary to degree programs.  Undergraduate applicants interested in this minor should apply directly to a bachelor program or as an undecided student.
