This immersion introduces students to the language, customs, and cultural aspects (history, art, literature, politics, anthropology, and music) of Arabic-speaking countries. The immersion consists of three language courses or, with permission, two language courses and one culture course. Students with previous language skills must consult the minor adviser for placement evaluation before they register for language courses. This immersion is closed to students majoring in international and global studies who have chosen an area of study in Arabic language, a field specialization in the Middle East, or are native speakers of Arabic.
