While there is no major or minor available, the Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures does provide advanced courses in Arabic.
Unlike traditional Arabic programs in the United States, students begin with spoken Arabic and gradually integrate Modern Standard Arabic through graded reading selections. By using the language in meaningful contexts, emphasis is placed on real communication and on developing proficiency in the language. Grammar is studied as it serves communication.
Studying Arabic can fulfill the foreign language requirement required of most undergraduate students at DU. Arabic students often pursue careers in fields such as journalism, business, translation, foreign service, finance, education and more.
