SUMMARY

Majoring in Arabic Language and Literature is not only a valuable choice, but naturally a necessary first step for undergraduates seeking to enter a career as a professor of religious texts, a foreign relations operative, or a military translator. In fact, arabic language and literature is an uncommon degree ranking as the 346th most popular major. Last year alone, there were 216 arabic language and literature diplomas received. In-state tuition for arabic language and literature at private schools is, on average, 3.8 times more costly than their public peers.

With only 37 universities offering this degree there might be a smaller selection of institutions that will have an option for you. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other arabic language and literature students, consider looking at institutions in Pennsylvania which have more undergraduates admitted to arabic language and literature than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to study arabic language and literature is in the Mid East region with Georgetown University, University of Maryland-College Park, and California University of Pennsylvania best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the top conference to major in arabic language and literature is the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference with California University of Pennsylvania representing the conference. That said, our belief is that the best college for arabic language and literature is Georgetown University, and here you can find our comprehensive list for the best colleges.

The overall best school does not have to be the best school for every student. There are many more perspectives to consider when selecting college. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely alter one's choice on which college to attend. Here at authority.org, we've examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which arabic language and literature college is home to the best college campus, the answer is University of California-Los Angeles. If, for example, you are primarily interested in which university has the finest campus, we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more in order to compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life here and our choice for the school with the best student life for arabic language and literature is Georgetown University. Curious why? Keep reading to discover more about our top choices. Many of our decisions might shock you.

If cost is a primary deciding factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Georgetown University. Georgetown University is the most expensive university for arabic language and literature, at least regarding out of state students. We have an entire page for the most expensive schools that might put the expense at Georgetown University into perspective. You could also care to know that arabic language and literature is the 185th most expensive major in the United States, with an average expense of $31,200. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for arabic language and literature on our list is District of Columbia with expenses at the main school, Georgetown University, of $55,440. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the country for arabic language and literature is the Great Lakes region which is best demonstrated with University of Notre Dame with a cost of $55,046, and Ohio State University-Main Campus with a cost of $31,174.

Our cheapest region for arabic language and literature is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790. More optimistically, the most affordable college for arabic language and literature is Brigham Young University-Provo. Authority's comprehensive list of the most affordable schools can be found here.

In-state attendees can expect to pay around $11,200 for a degree in arabic language and literature. The price increases by a lot to a median of $29,800 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our choice for the school representing the best value for arabic language and literature: Georgetown University. Here you will find our comprehensive list on the universities we see as being the best value overall. Do know, this section is predicated on out-of-state tuition costs. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is considered, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for arabic language and literature students range widely, but two years after finishing the degree graduates will often make around $71,800. While there can be a lot of variation in pay; top earners can bring in up to $156,100. Straight out of university, the lowest end positions within the arabic language and literature space make $33,100, which isn't that bad. The top earning graduates for arabic language and literature have come from Georgetown University and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The prevailing diversity of arabic language and literature ranks subpar, coming in the 33rd percentile of majors nationally. The college with the most composite diversity for arabic language and literature is Emory University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities with the most diversity. The financial diversity of Arabic Language and Literature only sits within the 16th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, ranking in the 27th percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest proportion, 70%, of students majoring in arabic language and literature. Additionally, 56% of students seeking an arabic language and literature major are women.

The median score of arabic language and literature's professors is 4.4 stars, a rating which is 10% above the average across every major; this is a fairly good ranking. If you want the most popular arabic language and literature instructor nationally, consider looking up Ghassan Zakaria at San Diego State University. It might come as a shock, but the top ranked arabic language and literature instructors according to students are found at George Washington University. As we consider data beyond simply rankings it becomes clear that the college possessing the best instructors for arabic language and literature is University of Notre Dame. You can find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with some of the top examples of instructors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult university to get into for arabic language and literature is United States Naval Academy. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we hope you understand that considering university from examples only derived from superlatives can create issues. We at Authority hope you look at some of our other pages on individual universities and read a few of our background 'blog posts' on beneficial things to think about as you progress with your university search.
