ARAB 2750 - Life and Culture of the Arabs


This course introduces specific elements of life and culture in the Arab World, past and present. Those elements include history, religions, geography, languages, arts, politics, and literatures. The course will be offered in English with no prerequisites and will be open for the general student body. The course seeks to create a link between the Arabic language and the culture that provides its natural context. The aim is to provide students with an informed and balanced view of some of the pressing aspects of Arab life and culture, and to do so in such a way as to demonstrate the uniqueness and yet diversity of Arabic sub-cultures on the one hand, and the universality of the Arab culture(s) on the other.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: This course satisfies General Education Area IV: Other Cultures and Civilizations.
