ARABIC PROGRAM

The Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at James Madison University offers a major and a minor in Arabic. The Arabic minor is a program that began in the academic year 2009-2010. The program has been successful and has resulted in the formation of an Arabic major which has been offered from the academic year 2012-2013.
