Undergraduate Programs


Near Eastern Languages & Cultures offers undergraduate students from across campus the opportunity to earn one (or more) of its 3 majors (Arabic, Hebrew, Jewish Studies, and Islamic Studies) and 5 minors (Arabic, Hebrew, Jewish Studies, Persian, South Asia Studies, and Turkish and Central Asia Studies).

Students who already have language experience may be particularly interested to pursue some of the Department's programs. However, students without any language training or experience can easily complete prerequisite language coursework before enrolling in a variety of upper-division coursework taught either in English or the language of study.

Students with questions about any of NELC's undergraduate programs should contact the departmental undergraduate advisor Tommy Beyl at beyl.1@osu.edu or call (614) 292-8485 to make an appointment.
