French and Arabic Track

35 semester hours

The French and Arabic track is designed for students who are interested in combining the study of the French and Arabic languages with the history, politics, and religions of Middle-Eastern cultures and with a major in another area, such as comparative studies, political science, geography or history.

Requirements for the French and Arabic track include the following seven or eight courses (25 s.h.) in addition to the 10 s.h. of foundational coursework in French:

  • Three courses in French literature and culture, or language (all three must be taught in French, at least one above the 009:150 level)
  • Two or three courses in Arabic language beyond the first year (must add up to 10 s.h.)
  • Two courses on Middle Eastern cultures taught in French or English under the Department's number (009), or approved courses from other departments
