Arabic after graduation
Carolina alumni have used their Arabic studies in a range of interesting ways after graduating. Graduates have worked in the Peace Corps in Morocco and Jordan and with refugee communities both in the Arab world and in the United States. They have used their Arabic as translators, reporters, doctors, and lawyers. They have traveled to the Arab world to teach, and to work in sustainable agriculture, public health, development, or in the US foreign service.
Arabic program alumni include Rhodes and Truman scholars, and regular recipients of prestigious fellowships such as FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies) and CASA (Center for Arabic Study Abroad) to continue their language training at advanced levels, both in this country and in the Arab world. Our Arab Cultures graduates have also been admitted to excellent graduate and professional programs in fields such as Arabic, history, linguistics, religious studies, anthropology, folklore, geography, public health, international affairs, law, medicine, and library science.
