Benefits of the study abroad program at AURAK include opportunities for a more genuine connection with local Arabic cultural, small university setting with individual attention, and a safe environment with the absence of any regional conflict, as well as the stability of a low crime rate in the UAE.  Student can focus on learning a new culture and making long-term relationships with students, faculty, staff, as well as locals. Larger groups may request a customized program based on Arabic language needs and cultural component. This applies to groups of twelve or more.

Academic Programs

Beginner Level Arabic Language and Culture I

Beginner Level Arabic Language and Culture I is the first in a four-course beginner and intermediate Arabic language sequence specifically tailored to the needs of non-native Arabic language students in the English and Mass Communication Programs (though any non-native learner of Arabic may enroll). This course introduces the student to the Arabic alphabet and the basics of reading and writing in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). Instruction in the language is enriched with cultural themes and visits to culturally significant sites.

Beginner Level Arabic Language and Culture II

Beginner Level Arabic Language and Culture II is a direct continuation of ARAB 101. This course is designed to enhance reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). With this course, students increase their vocabulary and improve their grammar in Arabic. Instruction in the language is enriched with cultural themes and visits to culturally significant sites.

Intermediate Level Arabic Language and Culture I

Intermediate Level Arabic Language and Culture for non-native Learners I is a direct continuation of ARAB 102 and represents the third of the four courses in the Arabic language and culture for non-native sequence.  By this stage, students are expected to be able to read and write at an intermediate level in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA).  The course’s main objective is to provide students with sufficient language skills and cultural knowledge to engage in oral and written discussions about basic life pursuits such as their studies, travel plans, family relationships, and future careers.  Colloquial Arabic dialect is also integrated into this course.

Intermediate Level Arabic Language and Culture II

Intermediate Level Arabic Language and Culture for non-native learners II is a direct continuation of ARAB 201 and represents the fourth and final course in the Arabic language and culture for non-native sequence.  By this stage, students are expected to be able to read and write at an intermediate level in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA).  Reinforcing the communication skills introduced throughout the cycle, this course provides students with sufficient language skills and cultural knowledge to engage in some discussion of matters of cultural importance, thus preparing them for ARAB 301.  Colloquial Arabic dialect is also integrated into this course.

Business Environment in the UAE

This course provides an introduction to understanding the vibrant business environment of the Gulf and Middle East.  Participants will gain an understanding of business practices and economic swings in the Gulf region with a focus on the United Arab Emirates.  The Dubai model, an international business hub not just for the Middle East but the world, will be examined along with other Emirates in the UAE.  Topics include trade free zones, Islamic banking and finance, tourism, and managerial tactics for working with multinational employees.
