Alternatively, a student may take courses to the 202-level in two Middle Eastern languages, one of which is Arabic, while the other may be another Middle Eastern language (for example, Persian, Turkish, etc.) Although the College is not currently able to offer languages beyond Arabic, a student could count another Middle Eastern language (for example, Persian, Turkish, Modern Hebrew) provided they can demonstrate proficiency through accredited academic coursestaken domestically or abroad.
