Minorities in the Arab World is a content-based course taught exclusively in Arabic. Through selected texts written originally in Arabic, the course surveys the main ethnic and religious minorities in the Arab World.

Assigned readings offer detailed demographic, historical, religious, political, and socio-economic analyses pertaining to at least 11 main ethno-religious minorities. Internal and external forces/powers that have impacted ethno-religious identities and conflicts are also discussed. The course aims at

  1. presenting a survey of key ethnic and religious minorities in the Arab World and
  2. developing the prerequisite linguistic knowledge (i.e., subject-specific Arabic vocabulary and register) as well as communicative language skills.
