Arabic Language & Culture

More than meets the eye

An ancient language for a modern career

Have an eye on an international career?

Arabic is one of the world’s oldest languages, the fifth most spoken in the world and among the six official languages of the United Nations.

It’s also the language of Dubai.  The largest city in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai also has the tallest building in the world, one of the fastest growing economies and the busiest airport for international travel.   

Regardless of your major, some familiarity with Arabic language and culture might be a wise career move.
