Developing Partnerships

Collaborating to expand understand of Middle East culture and studies.

We’ve partnered with St. Norbert College to develop the UWGB-SNC Middle East Initiative, which seeks to promote understanding of North Africa and the Middle East, including a Great Discussions lecture series.

Arabic Language Courses

Here, you'll continue your study of one of the most interesting languages in the world. Arabic is a Semitic language and a member of the Afro-Asiatic language family. Contrary to what most people assume, Arabic is not any more difficult to learn than other languages. In fact, many aspects of Arabic grammar are simpler than English.
