Arab and Islamic Studies Combined Honours

Arabic may also be studied with a Modern Language (French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish). No previous knowledge of Arabic is required. We offer four-year programmes, which include a Study Year in an Arab country and three-year programmes. The Arabic language component in these programmes follows the pattern of the BA in Arabic described above. For details of the individual combined Honours programmes, please see the relevant programme entry:
