2020-2021 Catalog


At MMC, we recognize the increasing importance of learning Arabic language and its role in understanding Arabic culture. Modern Standard Arabic, the form of Arabic shared by all Arab countries, is taught using primary materials in audio, video, and text. The Arabic program offers four courses which provide: 1)basic language instruction to develop listening, speaking, reading and writing proficiency; 2) a study of cultural developments in the Arabic world; 3) an introduction to literature of the Arabic world; 4) global awareness as a member of a multilingual, multicultural community at home and abroad.

The course sequence in Arabic offers an alternative path towards completing Gen. Ed. requirements. For details, see “The Language Path”.
