The Arabic Program at The University of Texas at Arlington is dedicated to the study of the language, literature, and culture of Arabic-speaking countries. Students have the opportunity to progress toward oral and written linguistic competence and to study Arabic communication within its cultural contexts. Courses are designed to increase students' abilities of self-expression, enhance their cross-cultural understanding, help them see their own culture from a fresh perspective, and develop the technical skills necessary to function in an internationalized economic, political, and web-based world.
Course offerings reflect a conscious effort to accommodate the needs of both non-native and heritage speakers, and to provide a comprehensive study of the language within its cultural traditions for greater international understanding.
Students interested in international relations and diplomacy, business, Middle Eastern culture, language, and literature, and web localization and translation will find relevant courses within the offerings. UT Arlington offers a Minor and a Certificate in Localization and Translation in Arabic.
