The Language Flagship Program at MSU

The MSU Arabic Flagship, housed within the Arabic Program within the Department of Linguistics and Germanic, Slavic, Asian, and African Languages,  provides a unique language learning opportunity for undergraduate students interested in developing superior-level proficiency in Arabic.

Flagship students major in a subject of their choice while completing specialized coursework in Arabic language and culture throughout their undergraduate college experience, developing the language skills necessary to function professionally in Arabic. Students of all different proficiency levels will follow personalized study plans consisting of traditional language courses complemented by co-curricular activities, personalized tutoring and an extended study abroad.

The MSU Arabic Flagship is part of a national initiative: The Language Flagship. The Language Flagship leads the nation in designing, supporting, and implementing a new paradigm for advanced language education. Through an innovative partnership among the federal government, education, and business, The Language Flagship seeks to graduate students who will take their place among the next generation of global professionals, commanding a superior level of fluency in one of many languages critical to U.S. competitiveness and security.
