The Arabic program at Kenyon has grown recently, mirroring the increasing interest in learning Arabic across the country. Many students have added Arabic to their language repertoire, including majors in MLL and Islamic Studies concentrators. Alumni from Kenyon's Arabic program have gone on to receive Fulbright awards, Critical Language Scholarships, and prestigious internships across the country as well as to pursue post-graduate degrees. Currently, Kenyon offers two full years of Introductory and Intermediate language study (and occasionally a course in Advanced Arabic language). Students can also participate in extra-curricular cultural activities to improve their language abilities, such as the Arabic lunch table - held every Wednesday in the Pierce Alumni Dining Hall - or learn more about the Middle East by participating in the student-run organization, the Middle Eastern Student Association. Students can also go abroad to several different Middle Eastern countries, including Jordan, Egypt, and Morocco, for their off-campus study abroad experience.
