The Bachelor of Arts in Arabic Language and Culture prepares students to read, write and speak Modern Standard Arabic. Qualified undergraduate students in this program may be eligible to participate in an accelerated B.A.-to-M.A. program, which enables them to take graduate courses that apply to both their bachelor's degree in Arabic Language and Culture and (thereafter) a master's degree in Arabic Language and Linguistics.
Cal U's Master of Arts in Arabic Language and Linguistics is designed for students interested in gaining advanced expertise in Arabic language and linguistics.
