    The Arabic Language and Culture Program gives students the opportunity to study Standard Arabic at all levels while integrating Colloquial Lebanese Arabic. The Colloquial Lebanese Arabic Program allows students to learn and improve their spoken and written Lebanese Arabic at three different levels. 


    Students in both programs have the chance to engage with the language and culture both inside and outside the classroom through the various Cultural Immersion opportunities.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


    CAMES launched its first intensive Arabic program in the summer of 2000 with just 17 students and two levels of Standard Arabic: Introductory and Intermediate. The program has since grown to welcome up to 90 students each summer who may enroll in levels of Arabic ranging from Elementary to High Advanced. ​The Colloquial Lebanese Arabic Program was launched in 2012 with just one class at the Intermediate level. CAMES began offering an Introductory class in the summer of 2017 and an Advanced class will be added in the summer of 2019.​
