Arabic Major & Minor
The minor in Arabic requires the completion of 15 hours of Arabic courses beyond ARAB 211.
A maximum of 9 credit hours may be taken through an approved study abroad program.
The major in Arabic requires the completion of 30 credit hours beyond the 200 level.
A maximum of 15 credit hours may be taken through an approved study abroad program.
Though not an absolute requirement, Arabic Flagship students typically earn Arabic majors due to the number of Arabic courses taken at UM and abroad. Flagship students are expected to follow a set curriculum that includes at least one Arabic course each semester, at least one summer abroad and the Capstone Year abroad.
Students may major or minor in Arabic without participating in the Arabic Language Flagship program. Non-Flagship students do NOT begin with the pre-freshman summer program. Non-Flagship students begin their studies during the Fall of their freshman year.
