In an increasingly global society, proficiency in a foreign language is a highly demanded skill. Take the knowledge, vocab, and grammar you’ve learned in the classroom and use it in real world situations to rapidly improve your proficiency. Expand your appreciation of culture and language by interning, volunteering or studying abroad in places such as Oman, Jordan, Israel, Morocco, and many more. In addition to language development, study Abroad provides opportunities for rich cultural enrichment, development of intercultural skills, and a deeper understanding of the heritage, problems, and perspectives of Middle Eastern cultures.
