Course Description

ARA 290 takes students to study Arabic language and culture in an Arabic-speaking country under the direction of a member of the Communications Division faculty. Prior to departure, students meet with the instructor for basic language and cultural lessons and to choose an individual topic of research in the area of Arabic language, literature, or culture. While overseas, students put their knowledge of language and culture into practice. On their return, students reflect on their study abroad experience, develop their topic of special interest, and present it in the form of a paper, portfolio, or project. Specific travel information will be announced at least one semester prior to departure.
