In order to provide students with opportunities to use Arabic outside of the classroom and bolster classroom learning, Flagship offers extracurricular language activities on campus:
Students in the Arabic Flagship Program may be eligible for Flagship funding to join one state-side immersion program and two study abroad programs in the Arab world. After completing their first or second year of Arabic at OU, students are eligible to apply for a 10-week summer program. After completing their fourth year at OU, students are eligible to apply for a year-long program. Click on the links for additional information on scholarships and other study abroad opportunities.
The capstone year is the final step to becoming a certified Language Flagship Global Professional. After approximately 4 years of Arabic at OU, students should be at high proficiency level of language and will apply to spend 12 months in Meknes, Morocco. Through this final year of language and culture immersion, students are expected to reach Superior/3 language proficiency according to the ACTFL/ILR scale.
