Summer 2015 Course: MDES 122 Arabic I

Why study Arabic?

– Gain a competitive edge in the job market

Register for Summer 2015
“My first semester at USC, I decided to enroll in Arabic more or less on a whim. It was a decision that proved to be a life-changing one. I quickly fell in love with the language, culture, and politics of the Middle East. Arabic became my passion, and I threw myself into the study of this fascinating region, ultimately adding a Middle East Studies major.”
– Nora Snyder, International Relations and Middle East Studies, Class of 2014
