Politics and Arabic - University of Manchester

The Joint Honours BA Politics and Arabic at Manchester is an innovative collaboration between the School of Social Sciences and the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. It offers unrivalled flexibility through its combination of politics, history and economics options in addition to the study of your chosen language and culture, providing an intercultural perspective that is increasingly at a premium in today's context of globalised studies and career paths. **Arabic** In the language courses you will gain competence in reading, writing, speaking and listening comprehension, while developing knowledge and understanding of the Arab World. You can study documents which introduce you to the cultures of the medieval Middle Eastern World and read contemporary literature reflecting life and social trends in modern Middle Eastern countries. **Aims** Develop strong analytical skills and an informed understanding of key areas of global politics, including European/international politics, international relations, global security and international development. Develop the linguistic skills and cultural knowledge to allow you to access and engage fully with political, historical and cultural issues in your chosen language. Offer a truly intercultural perspective on your studies and future career, facilitated by the possibility of studying a second language - either as a beginner or at a more advanced level - across your degree. **Why Manchester?** Politics with a Modern Foreign Language is taught across two specialist schools, benefiting from all the expertise that these have to offer. Combining the study of Politics and Language gives you a unique dual perspective on your studies in both areas. You can study a second language throughout your degree, as a beginner or at a more advanced level. You will develop strong analytical skills and an informed understanding of key areas of global politics, including European/international politics, international relations, global security, ethics, war and the role of emerging economic powers. You will also develop the linguistic skills and cultural knowledge to allow you to access and engage fully with political, historical and cultural issues in your chosen language.
