Arabic Studies at the University of Maryland consists of courses and programs that help students explore and become skilled in the extraordinary language, literature, and culture of the Arab world. Students in the program pursue either a B.A. or minor in Arabic.
Through participation in the Arabic Flagship at UMD, students from any major are also offered the opportunity to earn an advanced certificate in Arabic demonstrating both a superior and professional level of proficiency in the Arabic language. This training prepares them for employment domestically or abroad through additional clubs & activities, language partners, and study abroad opportunities.
University of Maryland also offers an Arabic immersion program through Language House that allows students to live and learn with a cohort of students practicing the language.
