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 4 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, and introduction to linguistics; you will choose an option module from intercultural communication, objects and meaning, introduction to language and literature, language myths, or a Westminster elective from across the University. The core modules in the second year are expressions of Arabic culture, and form and meaning; you will then choose two modules from a wide range of subjects including e'collaboration, culture and conflict, screening memory, literary linguistics, child language acquisition, language teaching, a work placement module, or a Westminster elective. In your final year, alongside your dissertation and a core module on themes in Arabic studies, you will choose four options from a wide range of subjects including people and things, gender matters, happiness, politics and literature, language contact and change, language and power, studies in literary language, or a Westminster elective.
