Welcome to LAU’s SINARC Arabic language and culture program.
أهلاً وسهلًا بكم في برنامج سينارك للغة العربية في الجامعة اللبنانية الأميركية


The LAU family hopes that you are staying safe and taking all necessary precautions to protect yourselves and those around you. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are proud to launch Study Arabic Online. The program will provide a number of credit-based and non-credit based course options for students interested in Arabic as a second language only and not toward earning a degree. Learn more about the online program.


SINARC welcomes students from across the world who wish to study all levels of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and the Lebanese dialect. As a SINARC student, you will benefit from full language immersion that combines classroom teaching with real-life practice as well as immersion in the culture of Lebanon and the Arab world through lectures, excursions and experiences. From its earliest days more than two decades ago as a summer program, SINARC has grown into a year-round program that is a leading choice for Arabic language learners whose aim is not only improve their language skills but also to gain a true understanding of the region.
