Graduating with a Bachelor of Arts is an accomplishment both personal and professional. It shows an ability to achieve a goal that takes years of concentration and exemplifies potential in the workplace.

What is a BA in Arabic? This degree demonstrates fluency and knowledge in the Arabic language. It typically involves learning about the culture in regions that speak Arabic. Most programs include courses on Arabic literature and history to improve cultural connection between students and Arabic speakers. The bulk of coursework generally focuses on teaching students to read, write and speak the language, a process that takes discipline. Students may become familiar with regional dialects, such as Egyptian, because of the widespread use and different iterations of the language.

A BA in Arabic teaches students to be rigorous in their studies. It can give students valuable cultural insight into areas in Africa and Asia and improves communication skills because of the intense study of how language is used, helpful in numerous professional settings.

The price of a bachelor’s degree in Arabic will vary among different kinds of schools, such as public and private, in different locations. Look at specific schools’ tuition cost and the length of the program to get an estimate of the cost overall.

Having graduated with a BA in Arabic is a unique qualification that is very marketable due to a dearth of Arabic speakers in the Western world. Government hiring officers are often on the lookout for Arabic interpreters to do work involving Arabic-speaking countries. Businesses looking for ways to do business with those countries value translators fluent in Arabic for translation and communication purposes. Knowledge of Arabic also qualifies graduates to become instructors, teaching English to Arabic speakers or educating English speakers in Arabic.

Institutions that offer a BA in Arabic are located in cities across the US, and internationally as well. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

At Westminster, we'll train you to become a competent linguist in modern languages, ready to enter graduate employment. We place particular emphasis on employability and the contemporary cultural context and offer high-quality teaching in all language skills. Our course offers you an opportunity to study Arabic and English languages and cultures in an integrated interdisciplinary way, exploring the connections between them and the broader historical and cross-cultural contexts in which they are produced. This course will enable you to achieve a good or high level of linguistic competence in Arabic in all four skill areas (reading, writing, listening and speaking), it will enhance your skills in using English, and develop your linguistic and cultural knowledge understanding. You'll be able to work in different cultural situations and you'll gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development. Our Arabic courses are only available to beginner or 'false beginner' entrants – false beginners are students who may be able to read the Arabic script, and/or have completed the equivalent of one or two years of part-time study. Please note that we may need to test you to determine your entry point. You’ll develop your understanding of the English language in terms of the way it is structured, its linguistic diversity in Britain and around the world as a global language, the ways in which it varies between different texts, and, at a wider level, the ways in which it reflects and contributes to wider meanings in society. You’ll also have the opportunity to consider the theoretical tools of both literary analysis and language research in detail. You may have the option to spend a full academic year abroad at a partner institution and/or an approved form of employment in a country where Arabic is the official language. You can also study an optional module from a range of topics across the University each year. -
