An intensive summer of studies of a foreign language can, and should, be challenging. After all, intense is in the name! With APA's well-rounded support system in place, rigorous studies are balanced with 1:1 advising and guidance so that each student can focus on maximizing their language potential.

Customized Language Support

  • Modern Standard Arabic: meet with an instructor for one hour each week and separately with a teaching assistant for 30 minutes. These individual sessions focus on oral and written Arabic expression.
