Description: In keeping with the mission of Notre Dame College, Arabic language courses offer students studies that enable them to think critically, read analytically, and write clearly in the Arabic language while learning about its literature and culture. The coursework in these areas provides students with the tools to develop communicative and intercultural competency and proficiency, so that they can interact, engage, and compete in the global community.

Arabic courses are open to all students, and the study of this language has applications for those students majoring in intelligence studies. The intelligence and law enforcement communities are seeking candidates for employment who have some proficiency in Arabic in order to effectively counter potential
international terrorist threats. Accordingly, some level of Arabic proficiency can be useful for candidates seeking employment with the Departments of State, Treasury, Defense, Homeland Security, and other federal, state and local agencies.

Program Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completing 12 credits of Arabic, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate sufficient comprehension to understand most factual material in nontechnical prose
  • Possess an active reading vocabulary
  • Initiate and maintain predictable face-to-face conversations and satisfy limited social demands such as travel and accommodation needs
  • Demonstrate understandable pronunciation
  • Demonstrate ability to write routine social correspondence
  • Produce writing that is legible to native readers
  • Comprehend short conversations in common social and emergency situations
