Despite the relative difficulty of the Arabic language, national security issues and a tremendous increase in the availability of jobs for Arabic speakers in both public and private sectors have made it one of the most popular offerings in foreign language studies.

College of Charleston faculty members Naomi Gale (Schusterman professor of Israel studies) and Ghazi Abuhakema (professor of Arabic language and culture) talk about their groundbreaking coursework on the shared culture of the Middle East.
