Welcome to LAU’s SINARC Arabic language and culture program.
أهلاً وسهلًا بكم في برنامج سينارك للغة العربية في الجامعة اللبنانية الأميركية
SINARC welcomes students from across the world who wish to study all levels of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and the Lebanese dialect. Students benefit from language immersion that combines pedagogy with practice. The curriculum also includes off-site trips and lectures that allow students to understand the cultural and political contexts within the Arab world.
The program started in 1998 with classes only taking place in summer. By 2008 it began running year-round. The program has quickly become a top choice for Arabic language learners looking to not only improve their language skills but also to gain a true understanding of the region.
The program is offered on the Beirut campus of the Lebanese American University (LAU), situated in the heart of the Lebanese capital, and in the New York Headquarters and Academic Center in Manhattan, New York.
