Brief Summary of ProposalThe proposed Arabic minor is modeled on other language programs that subscribe to the concept of developing proficiency in the four language skills in addition to studying literature and culture of the Arab World. It is worth emphasizing that the proposed Arabic minor will be different from the Certificate Program in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.While the Arabic minor is, on the whole, a language program (language, literature and culture), Middle Eastern Studies is an interdisciplinary program. The Arabic minor will complement, but not duplicate, the curriculum of the Middle Eastern Studies program. It will add electives to the curriculum, although only 16 credits of Arabic language will be allowed to count toward both programs, ARABIC 101,102,201 and 202. The level of proficiency developed in the Arabic minor is superior to that required by the Certificate in Middle Eastern Studies programs.
