The State of Israel, and its educational system, in general, are undergoing a significant change in the perception of Arabic studies in educational institutions, from elementary to high schools. The Department of Middle Eastern Studies offers a rich, three-year curriculum that meets all the standards of the Ministry of Education.
In the State of Israel, Arabic teachers specialize mainly in literary Arabic and less in the spoken language. Graduates of Ariel University’s program will be experts both in literary and spoken Arabic. In fact, the Department of Middle Eastern Studies offers a diverse program for training teachers who will master Arabic at all its different levels.
