Due to the COVID-19 pandemic UIC continues to accept undergraduate first-year and transfer applications for the Fall 2020 semester.

Degrees Available


New program

The minor in Arabic is designed to guide student understanding of the Arabic language and literature—through intermediate to advanced level proficiency classes—and Arab art, religious affiliations and practices, politics, trends, cultures, histories, and more. 

Students who complete the minor unlock a variety of job opportunities in health, technology and business sectors, especially because Arabic is the official language in more than 20 countries. 

Please note

Minors are complementary to degree programs.  Undergraduate applicants interested in this minor should apply directly to a bachelor program or as an undecided student.
