University of Westminster

Course Introduction

At Westminster we train competent linguists in modern languages ready to enter graduate employment. We place particular emphasis on employability and the contemporary cultural context, and offer high'quality teaching in all language skills. The course will enable you to achieve a good or high level of linguistic competence in Arabic in all four skill areas (reading, writing, listening and speaking), and demonstrate a good or high degree of proficiency in mediating between Arabic and English.

Course Modules

First year core modules cover the Arabic world and the word, language and culture, key words, and what is literature; you will choose an option module from subjects including intercultural communication, objects and meaning, Shakespeare and performance, poetry and politics, or a Westminster elective from across the University. The core modules in the second year are expressions of Arabic culture, the novel, and the 19th century; you will then choose two modules from a wide range of subjects including e'collaboration, culture and conflict, screening memory, writing revolutions, travel writing, a work placement module, or a Westminster elective. In your final year, alongside your dissertation and core modules on themes in Arabic studies, modernism and tragedy, you will choose two options from a wide range of subjects including gender matters, happiness, politics and literature, contemporary writing, and satire, morality and the city, or a Westminster elective.
