Students in the Arabic Studies Program have many valuable opportunities to engage with faculty, classmates, and the local community. With opportunities like the Jordan Summer Program, students are able to closely engage in pressing global issues through a more personal experience.
Students in the Arabic Studies Program may:
- Teach Arabic to children at the Regional Multicultural Magnet School in New London
- Recite Arabic poetry with the faculty at the College's night of international poetry
- Take a bus trip with the faculty to visit places like New York City to see museums and other cultural destinations
- Practice Arabic calligraphy and henna in a cultural workshop
This close engagement enables a unique kind of learning that continues outside the classroom.
Here, three Connecticut College students proudly display their certificates for teaching Arabic to students at the Regional Multicultural Magnet School in New London.
