Courses in Arabic are offered by the department of Modern and Classical Languages. For Allegheny’s Learning Outcomes for the study of modern languages, including Arabic, please see the “Modern and Classical Languages ” 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; see the “Study Away Programs ” section of this Bulletin for details. In particular, the sponsored program at Al Akhawayn University in Morocco offers instruction in Arabic.
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 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 ” section of this Bulletin.
