Semester and full-year programs

Northwestern has an array of semester and full-year programs available to help solidify your Arabic, Hebrew, and Turkish language skills. Please visit the Global Learning Office for more information. Counselors are ready to help students who seek global learning experiences: they can best answer questions regarding study abroad and/or they can help with the application process.

Currently, we have programs for Arabic, Hebrew, and Turkish.
