Course summary

Arabic is one of the world’s major languages, and this degree will allow you to become proficient while you build your understanding of the cultural and historical contexts that have shaped the Middle East and North Africa. From the early history of the Arabs, North Africans and Islam to the complex international relations of today, you’ll build your knowledge through a range of conceptual approaches such as postcolonialism, decoloniality and Critical Muslim Studies. You’ll benefit from a firm grounding in spoken and written Arabic – which you’ll strengthen by spending a year in an Arabic-speaking country – while gaining insight into the cultural, social and political issues that have shaped the Middle East. At the same time, you’ll build critical, analytical and advanced communication skills that are popular with employers. You’ll combine core and optional modules to give you a firm foundation in language study while allowing you to shape your degree to suit your interests in Middle Eastern Studies and North African Studies. You’ll have the option to study Turkish or Persian. This four-year course includes a year abroad.
