Director: D. Abou El-Seoud

The Arabic Language Institute offers an intensive summer program from the second week of June until the last week of July. Students must take twenty hours of class per week to be considered full-time. The summer curriculum includes either Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and Egyptian Colloquial Arabic (ECA) at all levels, or Modern Standard Arabic only, both options as a full load.

In addition, a number of electives is also offered out of which each student may take up to two (based on the required credits).

A minimum of six credits may be taken in the summer toward the Arabic Language Institute certificate.

Extra Curricular Activities/Student Cultural Activity Program


An integral part of the intensive language program, both full year & summer, is an extensive series of tours of Cairo and trips to the easily visited sites of interest all over Egypt. These tours and trips are supplemented by a lecture series. While the institute subsidizes a large portion of the expenses, including transportation (except where air travel is involved) and entrance fees, students are required to pay for their food and lodging.

The Arabic Language Institute cultural program also includes a cultural component featuring activities such as calligraphy, music and folkloric dance.

In addition, the program includes an end of semester summer party which is organized with the active participation of the students.

Besides the above activities, in the summer semester, the Arabic Language Institute offers a series of weekly lectures covering the cultural, educational, economic and political aspects of life in Egypt.
