University of St Andrews

Content

Arabic has been for many centuries the language of thriving literatures and rich and diverse cultures. Modern Standard Arabic is arguably the strongest link uniting many diverse countries from 'the Ocean to the Gulf'. It is the official language of the 22 members of the Arab League and one of the 6 official languages of the UN.

Arabic has been taught in various forms at St Andrews for several centuries, and the Department has an excellent record of academic scholarship in Islamic studies, Arabic and wider Middle Eastern history, and mediaeval and modern Arabic literatures.
