Arabic Language Program

Arabic Language and Culture Program

arabicThe Arabic Language and Culture Program runs during the academic year and is divided into two academic semesters, fall and spring. Students participating in the program receive instruction in the Arabic language through the Arabic Language Institute with classes focused on conversation, grammar, vocabulary, and writing.

Along with the classes, students participate in cultural outings throughout the academic year; traveling to various historic and iconic destinations within Lebanon and other nearby Middle Eastern countries. Tuition for the program is based on covering the expenses of the entire program including course credits, room, board, food, cultural tours and fees. Trips outside of Lebanon include visits to the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. Turkey may be visited as well depending on the programs enrollment in a given year.

The program is directly affiliated with Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA), which is managed from the offices of the North American Division (NAD). Students at Seventh-day Adventist consortium schools in North America and Australia can participate in the program while remaining enrolled in their home institutions. Prospective students not attending one of the consortium schools have the choice to apply and register through a consortium institution or apply directly to MEU for admission.

Admission requirements for students applying through ACA can be found on their website (www.aca-noborders.com). All other interested students should follow the normal admissions procedures of MEU when applying. (Watch Video Here)
