Course summary

Arabic is the main language of more than 250 million people inhabiting a huge swathe of land extending from the Atlantic to the Persian Gulf. It is the fifth most widely spoken language in the world and is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. Apart from opening the door to a fascinating and varied region, knowledge of Arabic provides access to the rich intellectual heritage of Islam. The School of Literatures, Languages & Cultures at the University of Edinburgh is recognised in the UK and internationally as a leading institution for research and study of Arabic, together with Persian, Islam, and the Middle East. This programme is designed to give you a thorough grounding in both classical and modern Arabic, enabling you to access a wide range of original material, from pre-Islamic poetry and Islamic religious texts to Arabic novels and television. Alongside knowledge of the written and spoken language, you will also acquire a good knowledge of the Arabic-speaking world, past and present, including its language, literature, culture, history, religion and politics. A year spent studying Arabic abroad provides complete immersion in Arabic language and culture.
