Temario

In the first year the programme's major component is the intensive study of Modern Standard Arabic; an introductory course in the study of Islam makes up the year. The second year continues the study of Modern Standard Arabic and at the same time introduces the student to Islamic texts. A third course is taken in Islamic studies and a fourth chosen from the option lists and approved open options. The third year of the course is spent at an Arab university or Language Institute in the Middle East, where students study the colloquial language as well as Modern Standard Arabic, and write an extended essay in Arabic.
