The goal of the minor in Arabic is to provide students with the proficiency to understand and use the Arabic language. The minor in Arabic is useful for many careers and academic specializations that require practical fluency in both Modern Standard Arabic and Colloquial Arabic. The minor in Arabic is open only to students for whom Arabic is not the first language. However, exceptions can be considered for native speakers who have had no formal schooling in Arabic.
