Student Experience

A community united by Arabic

Indiana University’s Arabic Flagship is more than a language-learning program. When you join our Flagship, you join a community of like-minded individuals that want to grow and learn with you. Outside of class you’ll meet with Flagship students, conversation partners, and mentors to improve fluency and grammar.

Extracurricular activities are designed to improve your language skills and teach you about the many different cultures of the Arabic-speaking world. Student-led shows and performances emphasize popular culture, history, and hobbies. The Arabic Flagship learning environment is intensive and prepares you for your Capstone year and other study abroad opportunities.

Many extracurricular activities will enrich your Arabic Flagship experience. The program arranges for talent shows, poetry recitation competitions, game days, Arabic dinners, and film screenings.

In addition to language study and extracurricular activities, Arabic Flagship students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of public events. A number of public lectures take place each year, giving insight into aspects of Arabic cultures. The best way to succeed in the Arabic Flagship is to dive into the enrichment activities we offer.
