The Summer Arabic Intensive is a residential language program in Berkeley, California, designed for students motivated by any number of reasons, such as for personal enrichment, the serious study of the Islamic tradition, or future academic study. The program incorporates classical Arabic texts and modern academic rigor within a nourishing spiritual environment. Students complete the program with the tools to begin a lifelong journey of learning Arabic.
The rhythm of life at the Arabic Intensive aligns with the norms of Islamic faith and practice. Students who are not Muslim but are open to studying in a devotional (yet non-proselytizing) setting in which Arabic is taught as a sacred language are welcome at the program.
