Studying Arabic and learning about the Arabic-speaking world is of increasing importance in the 21st century. A minor in Arabic language at American University becomes an official part of your university transcript and complements any major field.

Not a beginner? Students who enter with previous background can select other courses in consultation with Professor Berg.

Need a change of scenery? Many students take Arabic courses while studying abroad in Egypt, Jordan, or Morocco. Contact AU Abroad for more information.
