DePaul's innovative new M.A. program in Arabic provides
students a customizable, flexible curriculum to develop advanced
linguistic and cultural expertise in a language and to apply that
expertise in the disciplinary or professional contexts of their choice.
Whether in the “global village” of today’s world or in multiethnic
communities such as Chicago, this advanced expertise is an increasingly
valuable personal and professional asset, requiring appropriate training
and credentials. The M.A. program especially seeks to serve adult
professionals (government employees, social workers, healthcare
providers, businesspeople, or certified K-12 teachers) whose careers
require this applied expertise.
