Note: Students who already speak (intermediate-level or better) French or a Middle Eastern language (Arabic, Berber, Farsi, Hebrew or Turkish) may have the language requirement waived. Instead, they should take one additional 4 credit elective.
TREC programs that involve travel to the region also may count towards the Minor.
With the approval of the Director of the program in Middle Eastern and Muslim Communities, students may count towards their minor other appropriate intermediate- and upper-level courses, which may be offered from time to time.
Students contemplating graduate or professional work related to the Middle East are strongly encouraged to study Arabic and to supplement their study of the language with intensive summer language programs recommended by the Director of the Middle East Studies Program.
