The Arabic Section of the Modern Languages & Literatures Department supports a variety of activities that help to increase familiarity with Arab culture, such as film series, guest speakers, and a weekly Arabic language table. Students of Arabic can take advantage of a rich environment for language study, including intensive introductory and intermediate language courses, chat hours with native speakers, multimedia resources, and opportunities for study abroad. Knowledge of Arabic contributes not only to our geopolitical connectivity with Arabic speaking countries; it also contributes to students' work in the interdisciplinary program of Islamic studies and in anthropology, comparative literature, history, linguistics, religion, sociology, and other fields. Students are urged to take courses on literature in translation, culture, film, and others related to these interdisciplinary focuses.
