The Arabic Program at the Pennsylvania State University has been growing steadily.  It has attracted students across various academic fields ranging from Middle-Eastern studies, political science, and business to engineering and the sciences.  The Arabic program presently includes six semesters of Arabic.  The courses focus on learning the language and its culture through the study of various types of authentic discourse.  The classes are learner-centered, using a communicative approach, and emphasizing all four language skills (reading, speaking, listening and writing).  Students will gain knowledge, skills, and awareness necessary to succeed in and contribute to a global world.
