Al Akhawayn University offers seven undergraduate degrees from among three schools, science and engineering, business administration, and humanities and social sciences. Fourteen graduate degrees are offered in addition to executive education and special programs for continuing education. All courses are delivered in English. Language classes are offered in French, Arabic, Spanish and Berber. 

Of special interest are courses in history and political science that focus on North Africa and the Middle East. Arabic language courses are also offered in Modern Standard Arabic. Arabic is not offered at all levels each semester and students should refer to the course catalog for level selection.

Language Courses 

Arabic:

• Modern Standard Arabic is offered in addition to regular classes during the academic year and semester for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Beginner I is offered in both the fall and spring semesters. There are three contact hours per course.

• Moroccan Arabic is available for students who have had a semester of Arabic or who are familiar with Arabic script. 

French and Spanish: 

• Beginning French and Spanish as foreign languages are offered each semester. Intermediate French is offered as well, but intermediate Spanish is dependent on demand.

• French majors should be aware that all French classes with the code FRN are for students who use French as a second language with professional needs. There are no courses in literature or culture taught in French. Very advanced French speakers could be placed into a class of Moroccan students. 

Students beyond the beginning level must take a placement test and may not register until after results are posted during the orientation for all foreign language classes. The host institution ultimately determines your proficiency level and course eligibility.
