What is Arabic Studies?
May 9, 2022
Have you ever considered learning another language? Exploring a different culture, religion, or society? If so, you may want to learn more about the Arabic Studies program offered through the University of Cincinnati. Encompassing twenty-two countries and Palestine, the Arab world has a population of about 300 million people, and more than a billion people use Arabic as a vital component of their daily lives. In fact, in 1974 the United Nations adopted Arabic as one of its six official languages. The Arabic world has strategic significance for the US government and military, creating a demand for its speakers and incentive for more learners. Offered through UC’s College of Arts and Sciences (A&S), Arabic Studies offers students a robust, topical course selection ranging from language and literature to explorations of Middle East politics.
