  • Language courses

    The Certificate in Language Proficiency is a new initiative of the Faculty of Arts aimed to promote proficiency in foreign languages.  In today’s multi-cultural and multi-linguistic world, sound knowledge of one or more foreign languages is a must, and it is one of the most sought-after skills by both local and international employers. 

    The Faculty of Arts, therefore, is offering all university students the opportunity to study a foreign language from scratch or to strengthen their knowledge of a language they have already studied at SEC, Intermediate, or Advanced level.  These certificate courses are spread out over three years (i.e., 6 semesters) and they may be taken concurrently with any undergraduate and postgraduate courses offered by the University, whether followed on a full-time or part-time basis.

    The Certificate is being offered in the following languages: Arabic, Spanish, Italian, German or French.
