For Students Thinking Globally, Consider Arabic Studies, Carolina Experts Say

 |  Heidi Finley  | Carolina College Bound

Students looking for a major that will translate into job opportunities with a global outlook should consider studying Arabic, Carolina experts in the field say. NC State offers a major in foreign languages and literatures with a concentration in Arabic language and culture. Four years of Arabic language is required, along with courses in history, religious studies, political science and anthropology, to equip students to understand cultural and historical contexts and nuance in the Middle East.
