Thomas Neil ’14 got his wish, spending the summer immersed in the Arabic language and Omani history and culture.
The Arabic program introduces students to Arabic language and culture. All courses are taught in Arabic and provide intensive work in oral and written expression. The language curriculum can be complemented with courses on the Middle East and North Africa offered by departments such as History, Religious Studies, and Anthropology and with off-campus study program options.
The Alumni Recitation Hall contains classrooms for classes in the Social Studies and Humanities, as well as faculty offices for departments of foreign languages and Classics. The facilities also include a 158-seat screening auditorium, the multipurpose Meredith AudioVisual Center, and an additional computer lab with multiple printers for both classroom and general student use.
ARH is wheelchair accessible. An elevator at the south end makes it easy to reach the auditorium and accessible restrooms on the third floor. Automatic door operators are located on the southeast and southwest sides, and accessible parking is available along Park Street.
