Take your pick: Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi, Persian, Swahili, Turkish, Twi, and more. With the African, Middle Eastern and South Asian Languages and Literatures program of Rutgers University, you will acquire an advanced level of proficiency in any one of these languages and explore their rich and vibrant literary and cultural traditions, from ancient times to the 21st century. Discover the mystical love poetry of Persia, the magical world of African folklore and myth, the magnificent Vedic scriptures of India, and the controversial modern fiction of Nobel-prize winning authors from the three regions, like Orhan Pamuk, Wole Soyinka, Naguib Mahfouz and Nadine Gordimer. Our courses cover a broad range of topics that emphasize the geographic and cultural interconnectedness of Africa, the Middle East and Asia, and that address issues of relevance to the complex world we live in today, such as feminism and Islam in Africa, or modernism and colonialism in the Arab world.
An AMESALL degree will give you a strong working knowledge of the major social and cultural movements in the history of these connected regions and the language proficiency you will acquire on the way will prepare you for a job market in a world where the center of business, politics and intellectual wonder is increasingly moving east and south.
