Professors Alkyam and Hilal
Courses in Arabic are offered by the department of World Languages and Cultures. For Allegheny’s Learning Outcomes for the study of world languages and cultures, including Arabic, please see the “World Languages and Cultures ” section in this Bulletin.
Students learning a foreign language are urged to spend a semester or preferably a year abroad. The College sponsors several distinct study-abroad programs that are open to all qualified Allegheny students and to which Allegheny financial aid may be applied; in particular, the sponsored programs in Al Akhawayn University in Morocco and at the CIEE Amman Study Center in Jordan offer instruction in Arabic. See the “Study Away Programs ” section of this Bulletin for details.
International Economics and Business
Those students wishing to pursue a career in language with a focus on international economics or business should combine their study of a particular country and language with a background in economics. If students are majoring in Economics or Business and studying Arabic, they should take all the courses offered in Arabic language and literature. In addition, students are encouraged to study abroad and to complete an internship either abroad or with a company engaged in international trade. For economics courses that complement an Arabic minor, see the course of study described under International Economics and Business in the “Economics ” and “Business ” sections of this Bulletin.
