International relations, Arabic studies


Q: Why Connecticut College?
A: Because of the emphasis on internationalizing a liberal arts education. The opportunities for finding unique intersections of conscious citizenship and international awareness are unlimited here. By learning Arabic and studying abroad in the Middle East, I hope to better the world I live in.


Q: What drew you to Arabic studies?
A: This program was one of the main reasons I came to Connecticut College. The level of instruction is superb and the students are proud to enhance the international character of the campus. I've never met a group as joyfully invested in both their studies and extracurricular activities. We are a tight-knit community.


Q: Did you study abroad?
A: Twice: with the Arabic studies summer program in Jordan, and then during a semester in Jordan. Both gave me an amazing mix of complete language and culture immersion.
